3 Poems for August 3

August 3, 2012 § Leave a comment


Some people want to make
a saint out of me
I prefer something more
something like a victim
but without the sound





Exocity is wildly financed:

We horse longer
than girls
long for
we throw out
and harbor
while girls
boy with
become over-
sound under-
grounded shot
bodies in






Why do you always lie
about the riots
I was there I was searching
for my mom

-Johannes Göransson, from PILOT (“Johann the Carousel Horse”) Fairy Tale Review Press, 2008
