Jenny Kalahar Poems

After A Funeral

I missed it all
The whole darned thing is over and done
I had sat there in the front row, facing the simple coffin
And I let it go and pass and end

A Butterfly In Neon Gas

a butterfly in neon gas
flashing candied colors
breathing that which
exhaling that which

Questions Before Afterlife

In afterlife will I see the King
with outstretched arms to me
Or will I sail a ship alone
across tawny sands of memories

Squashed Fat

Like a blobfish without soulful eyes
more orange than white, this pumpkin
takes over my garden
its ridges uneven


There is more than a rippled pane of tinted glass
between air I exhale
and the world I used to live in
under the tree of my childhood on tire swing

I found a new way of seeing life and world in Jenny Kalahar's poems, this is one of the aspects that Art needs.
