ORIGINAL POEM BY DAVID SICHLER
discard beloved language for rabid chase
art brut hiding under dirty nails
drunk and heavy like pollen
portraits of the lamented flirt before departing
eating a polished path through basalt caves
we began on raining stones
carrying the recital of stars
the birth of faces
the life of tails
my tattooed mind recalls
a child’s footlocker of failed comets
vibrating a cosmic song
sometimes the kindred sound the same
