Book of Matches / by D.M. Jerman




Folks-
First Post! I'm finding that I could use a new outlet on the web and I enjoy this particular blog format, so here goes. Hope to satisfy with a poem and pix of some tasty graf from a recent trip to New Orleans. Stay awesome.

Book of Matches-

Window
white wash cement

Past park
embankments captured
by sculptures of men

City tide
thickened in brick
made mad to siren
and falling children.

Cigarettes, pizza.
almost cheap as free.

Stopped to read
sidewalk covenant
bristling by
excuseme
and
thankyou

The polite sneer
pressure stop
over gates to guiderails

Instant
summer
disappearances.
