a dead boy (2009)

(after Jack Spicer)

the river is lost

the flowers dry
and fulvous

shards of cold glass in the bed
for which you are now too tall

the brown bird in the tree
is made of paper

the tree is made of paper
and green glass

another insufficient song
slips under the earth

here where you are sleeping


  1. strong and moving.
    i like the minimal use you create this effect so well with

    jappy holy days

  2. happy of course
    but jaaaaapy can be too

  3. Thanks, a happy festive season to you too! :)
