Ink Sweat and Tears - The Poetry and Prose Webzine - December 2016

The Twelve Days of Christmas Feature

Eighth Day (December 29, 2016):


Living Above Ground


not allowed
to have bird feeders
or flowers
on the balcony
I am withering

cars racing
down the main drag
on humid nights
squealing tires anathema
to my wintering heart

unfinished
a skyscraper cages
the harvest moon
freedom comes sooner
for some than for others

beneath
my third floor window
six deer
with snow on their backs
the warm blood of stones
