Jeannie Carlson: Increased Chatter

Spring '13 TOC


Clatter in silence

Mouths moving without breath

Animated in death

Slippery soft

Soothing in what isn’t understood

Subverting its meaning

Meandering in the dessert

Vocal chords parched

To dust

A liter for the soul

Simpering in blind ethereality

Until an oasis can be found

Off the heat, the fire

Dehydrated dry

Blending into the sand



Not Enough Night
