Poet’s Corner


By Clark Myers

think of your ribs as bricks
stepped toward the sky

think of your breath as smoke
and your love toward your loved

as late night embers
think of your heart as bellows

and kindling
our place here
is to burn as one

think of us as flames
on candle wicks
being passed from one
to another
