Best Poem of michael pacholski


I had a best friend once
and a wife
with beads and blue eyes
the shine on everything
up and down we went
our eyes meeting equally
from time to time

until I saw something
in the dim edge of the horizon
a flower once thought bright enough to blaze
in the spectrum’s dimmest edge
but was instead
nothing but delusion
a dimmer star

I had to leave
I had to chase
I had to see

and so I got off
the bottom of the seesaw

The Innocent Louse

The louse can live its entire life
on the curve of a cat’s tail
boring tiny burrows
for homes and suburbs in the flesh
with a body and a system
made for sense
and perception of a world
made of nothing but long cat hair
cat skin, cat marrow and blood
