Poetry

Audio: Read by the author. 


 

rabies and 
angels 

babies and 
mangers

devils and 
Handels 

c I was reeding you 
see I was reading you 
sí I was red in you 
sea I was ready ewe 
sea I was ready too 
sí I was ewe too 
see I was always you
c how I love u too

broad daylight

and the 
candles 
weeping 
on the 
buck’s 
antlers 
blanch 
summer 
grass 
winter 
red

his eyes, 
drooping 
woofers

salty 
mats  

stars
streams
and brainlines 

we carry 
strings  
of lights
into 
broad day-
light 
where
hearts 
walk 
the bulbs
with bare 
feet 

cry to 
the stars! 

Christ 
in every 
where
every 
there,
every 
here


air
