The Best Poem Of Sonny Cain


Sometimes -
I see myself as a monstrous dog
munching on the bones of the belligerent I have laid to rest,
laying in tall grasses -
with the sun low behind me
with blood, skin and flesh
stuck to my teeth and fur

and then I see myself - a man emerging from the house
and I tell me to -

put it down
let it go

put it down
let it go

and I do. -- and I roll over --
and dream of blood.
