Jagermeister | poem
Dedicated to Courtni Mitchell
Weeping willow that doesn’t weep.
Eye of an ocelot who never sleeps.
Wild centaur raiding kingdoms for roses. Wise child
Growing up in tree houses.
Autumn leaves shimmying down rivers, sinking
Toward bottomless troves.
Tension of the bow; release of the arrow.
Huntress’s smile; goddess’s child.
Sky crackling, smoking like steak in the summer.
Ocean’s desire for simplicity. Felicity found in
Superstitious leprechaun feasting on fireworks. Lilies
Growing underwater. Heart of a new mother.
Fist of an old father.Crystallizing throat when hugging another.
