Christopher Barnes: Two Poems

Fresh

…fortune-bitter.  You sport
a disposition…

     *

…palette knife.  Turf
onto wire rack…

     *

…”Cudgelling fossilized blockhead,”
she lisped…

     *

…our gabber.  Ultimately,
allure…



Bridges Home

…in Crab St.  Rule-book tickles
didn’t…

     *

…not oatmeal.  Fortify
with Quorn…

     *

…history museum,
rubbernecking a colossus…

     *

…I slide back the gateleg,
a torrent of Motown…
