New poems at Lucid Rhythms
Somehow I keep forgetting to post links to new poems online. Here are title and openings from two (from The Book of the Red King manuscript) at Lucid Rhythms, edited by that energetic poet, writer, and editor, David W. Landrum.
Just for fun, I'll slap in a few pictures from my family home in Cullowhee, North Carolina.
The Silver Cord
The Fool has no mastery of his mind
But is as helpless as a skittles top,
Reeling drunkenly from mystical
The Yellow Day
The Fool is whittling doors for fairy houses
Lapped in moss and sheathed in silver birch,
While children gather close to watch the knife
