Best Poem of John Farrell

Abstract Art

Drawing on the eyelids of a vulpine beauty
Wailing inward at abstract art

Flickering images/ ghost-like
Fading in and out of mid-west focus

Leaving titanium white brush strokes
On the canvas of habitual sleep

Embracing her in your arms
Kissing her hand in the slaughter-house

Smeared memories of quietus passion
The vulpine beauty hanging on the meat hook

Blood dripping/ abstract art on the floor

Icicle (Number 1)

In dusk November, the red sheets beneath my body.

The box fan mixes a cocktail of air from the radiator
heat and the chill creeping in from the cracked window.

The poets are with me, intoxicated and alone-
I have their words and plenty of booze
to get those ideas out tonight.
