Five Poems by David L O’ Nan

I Hope All is Well in Utah

I am thinking of you in Utah

on a sand dune writing poetry,
an architect with a blueprint.

There you are, complaining about something.
Red ants try to ruin your vision

names were bombs and bread and bank,

played the fool, the freak, the crank

Three kings

 

Were three kings, their songs were sung

by someone who had lost his tongue,

on laurel garlands they were hung

Three kings
