New Poem: Sunrise With Sea Monsters
This latest poem is inspired by the J.M.W. Turner painting of the same name - a painting which I was lucky enough to see with my own two eyes at the Turner exhibit at the AGO in November.
Here's a snippet from the poem:
You’ll love my children more than I do.
I will brag about a sapphire dug
from the sandbox. You’ll think I’m
hungover. Gin. I am, and I’ll have kid shit
in my fingernails. A night swigging art
is a hulk eschewing the shore, but the
swimmer is poor, sighs then sinks.
