A Poem by Brenton Booth


yes yes yes
egg faced sand tango’s
stone legged tourists smile and break
soap edged guillotines lather weary grey palings
orange peel crabs drink stinging bees—
running barefoot on the melting ice


the sledgehammer jabbing away at my coward spirit
like lightning chewing on an albino cat:
while cars drive by worth more than my last five working years
and i worry about losing the next.
