Two Poems by George Mckim

to walt whitman



leans into your face


as sleep,

recalls your

moments of light



the silent film,

is ingrained in your face


the unkempt desert

of your shadow

weeps itself up

from the casket

of new jersey, where



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,



through the apocalypse

of your thousand

fingered trees


George McKim
