Discard


Medicined autumn
Night of the football referees
Tasting
Sugar
By lip & sign
Throw me away
An old black coat
Unmysteriously
Torn:

“& we looked up into that sky
empty of all sky
only those birds
swimming the rain
& god.”

  1. Tight and cryptic, the way I like it. Powerfully resonant second stanza.
