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.

Morning Prayer


This morning I awoke with a fresh sense

of the total, desperate hell



Our failure to love each other well



O let a jesus come down and make it sweet

Let a jesus take an axe to the wheel



Part the fire with tongs
