recent and not so recent poems:

is shape. remember the face we saw in the bruise?
[minutes with my son]
is the imaginary
in the clockmaker’s
I am the weakest person my brothers don’t know. I go with them under a blanket we won’t all come out of. hell of a word, hovercraft, but not a sucker for meaning. god torches the bathroom then speaks farmhouse to the father of the accident that never happened. I have a tooth or two knocked in by a footprint. a tick I call dust.
get past it.
in the angel’s book on animal visitation
a deaf clown
all things fish, I suspect, have forgotten to worship the devil.
/ riggers of cow-country staring contests. bread’s ruin.
in a lifeboat
