some recent poems:

[cigarette gospel]

on a stage
in a beaten
field
a man
new to walking
is opening
with his hands
the belly
of a shark
that’s eaten
by word of mouth
a local
priest
whose fingernails
miss teeth
like an angel

~

[bowl and psalm]

his inner monologue made of water.

a pill
in a drop
of rain.

a rabbit on a leash. a dead bird
in a woman’s hat.

wind.

my eye for my other
oh town
of Ark.

~

[untitled]

~

[the men of left field]     for brother Noah

I think / in a past / life / my sense / of touch / was yours
