Poem: “in an oregon forest w/peach wine coolers” by Constance Bacchus

glaze sky, brick, long cigarettes
                                                       for michael


mason    buff, tan   need

                                         it it  will not lie
                    smooth             

sm house                     glow, there
                 sm  slither

everywhere then                                crossing
                              everything  too

  else

                  rain                                    hibernates
                                   throws
holds

               sunrise 
                               half-blind
                                                    snow stays

I have to go back.

                           desperate           you
wait   
                  brisk               sage

 / snow & 
preserved,  face

edged  penny, penny                thoughts
                        some/someplace              lasting
fog heartbreak
