jim leftwich, 4 poems

​delta odd 20 (Bir) 1970
in the event of soft

the sun cantaloupe
pure Medium sun
misgoverned by
asserted scriptures

unknown electric gazing
the mechar works of thought
should fresh water run
down your shoulders
along your shoulder
blades / a household name,
cleaning fish
on the wayward shore

today an only-young
who will wig the reverend
wounded & shirtless
thin tricks telling
the winter
who wanders this thornier
think of the rectilinear ghosts
chatting about state
over the counter
on a Thursday evening
