Cycle - Poem by James Reiss


What why when where who
I crush my wedding glass beneath my shoe

In with from to at
I kiss my bride & cry Jehoshaphat

Five three four two one
I father daughters & entomb a son

Minsk Flint Perth Seoul Rome
I travel far to find myself at home

Large squat thin fat small
I greet a stranger in a shopping mall

Taste touch smell hear see
I lose my wife my gentle Melanie

I take my life & shake it by the hair
Who what why when where
