The mordants in their noise,
the night transports.
A means of coming to
the switchyard of the tongue.
To have once
set such store by
Not changed toward
something of my own.
The towns raised chaffed
seas to ground them.
In that frieze before
storm you went on.
Effigy loomed out
of cornfield. Future
inside its trussed forms.
A Friend Like You
A friend like you to
Be there by my side when others are
Criticizing me and
Doubting me. You are there with me
Every step of the way. I’m glad to have a
Friend like you. Even though you are
Gone, you’ll always be missed. And sometimes it gets
Hard without you here, but
I remember the times we shared together and that’s
