SHORT POEMS
by Michael Prihoda

 

cry

 

maybe

tonight

 

through

an effort

 

of the will

we can

 

cry each

other clean

 

 

trunks

 

maybe,

before lightning,

 

trees were

only trunks

 

growing

forever

 

 

endless

 

rain jackets

—wet—

 

purpose served,

no tactics

 

in the sky’s

offensive,

 

endless

feeling

 

but then

it’s over

 

 
voices

 

some days

I need

certain

voices

on the line

to keep

from seeing

each

tree

as a

possibility

 

 

impressions

 

when we

are four

impressions,

 

feet ghosted

on damp soil,

 

still I will live

in those footsteps

we shared,

 

moving far past

this motion’s end
