November 2014, First Literary Review-East

November 2014.
A great collection of poems in the Nov 2014 issue of The First Literary Review -East. Honored to have one of mine “A light touch” in it along with the light and thoughtful ones from many poets.





No, I cannot tell you

what I do with poems

after I have read them

It is less potent than what

they do with me

after they blunt my thorns

You would think it foolish

drinking wine to amass vintage bottles.

Now give me back the corpse

I have found a grave
