"... brevity is the soul of wit ..."
- William Shakespeare

Erik-John Fuhrer


hunger years

acid isn't hot enough to quell this spoil
the earth isn't deep enough to bury the stars:

strawdust clouds speak rain
sisters pull bones from their side
heavy ammunition as they slide:
a swell of swallow in a shallow kiss

pearl tree trunk cold
the eyes you saw me with
the mirror of the open sky:
the crows pick those years clean
