Two Poems by George Mckim

to walt whitman

 

morning

leans into your face

gray

as sleep,

recalls your

moments of light

 

yesterday,

the silent film,

is ingrained in your face

 

the unkempt desert

of your shadow

weeps itself up

from the casket

of new jersey, where

 

sparrows

are building poems

in the sad forest

of your eyes

 

small fires

 

you wear

the sun’s plumage

like a vestment

of small fires

 

in the blue

suicide music,

stars

stumble

through the apocalypse

of your thousand

fingered trees
