New Year’s Poem
In the beginning there was paper
blank loud neat
and no one understood the
except the red wine that swam
in my mouth
and shadows of moving bodies
and dotted lines on the road
that didn't make the cars
(we were all drinking)
It took too long for someone
to focus on the blank paper
to pull the water-glued
Puddles of ink
migrate. We all stop
there won't be any place to
and new is as new does,
so pull the ink along the page,
fill the pages
