Poetry Magnum Opus


Recommended Posts


Here, the half-light teases
more with less

Stones melting to shadows
Shadows melting into stones

Back bent, comma'd, trusting
this thinning path

Distrusting the blister of sounds
Inside and out there

No door scrapes shut, no waterfall
in hurried descent

Just a scratch of light across ink
This is reason enough

And it just gets better and better.  I could read work like this all day.

This more emulates the WCW style but seems to be a tributary to Beyond the Stone Wall.   A few more like this and you could have a cohesive book of poems all carrying the same thread while each being unique.  I would buy it.
