Poetry Less Than Daily

Strong Poems. Beautiful Poems. Tough Poems. Poems w/ the F-word. Poems less frequent than before but no less kick-ass.

River Song

Panic diagonals
their river-method duck’s-head breath

You preferred the park
before the leaves came out

Later was too late for the river fronds
to unbraid the hair of the raven

The moon has two birthdays
you’re the personal servant of taillights

Spectator of day’s finest closing

At dusk you apologize

The colors forgive you because they change

I dig it. See, you can still write about things like birds and the moon and still sound fresh -- take note oh po-mo clanspeople.
