Stephen Edgar Poems

1.
Man On The Moon

Hardly a feature in the evening sky
As yet—near the horizon the cold glow
Of rose and mauve which, as you look on high,
Deepens to Giotto's dream of indigo.
...

2.
The Secret Life Of Books

They have their stratagems too, though they can't move.
They know their parts.
Like invalids long reconciled

3.
The Kiss

How can she do this now that it's all changed,
Present her lips to kiss
As though that known face were the same as this

Furnished across a table,
The long provisions of midafternoon:
The cups, according as each tongue is able
To stand the heat, more or less full, and strewn
...

5.
Entropy Blues.

Tic in my jaw has slackened.
I'm high on feverfew.
I'd sleep, but in my dreams I'm black and blue.
...
