One Final Hurt

entry picture

Every now and then, we find a band aide to cover a wound on our soul

and in anticipation of the pain we will feel

our muscles tense and our jaws clench

until it is pulled off all at once

one final hurt

 

To recover, we sleep as thunder rumbles its wa...

The Shed

Hanging in the shed

Are four dead pheasants and a woodcock

 

On a makeshift table

Some half-eaten sandwiches and a thermos

 

A drab green waterproof

Hangs on a nail above some boots and drips

 

The man sits talking to a friend

And rubbing his damp hair with an old towel

 

Outside dogs are sniffing around the cars

Ignoring the rain one man is hunched over his ...
