Lori Lubeski and Jeanette Landrie

from has the river of the body risen

come out in the sunlight
branded by morning
all the bitter momentary relief
raked up in piles of leaves
jumping off the roof into
more heavenly sculptures
he is shaped into

 

the inability to sleep
whispers in senseless ears
not to be heard by
consistent ringing of angels
in a farce of recognition

back
