Poetry > Individual Poems

They found him above in the road
face down in the hurt gravel

fronded with a thin ice
like calico left out to bleach.

The hole in his head
was stamped like a thumb print.

Words would issue
bad blood.


2
A body
the morning revealed

caught
between lines.

Later, identification:
father of five, devoted.

Reason for death: catholic
lived here.
