Poems

poetry is the balance of inner and outer,
poised between being and considering:

I’ve sat in this room for an hour
just now noticing a rip in the carpet.

I’ve sat here in this burrow for years
absentmindedly fingering a rip in my soul.

poetry is the balance of inner and outer,
posing between been and considered.

in the gloaming (my poet speaks to me)

night falls (and my saint speaks)

only count to only

rare as wood

unmanned band

valediction

Y-O-U

to the theme of psalm 16

in the tunnels
