Two Poems at Pyrokinection

23 Jan

Many thanks to the wonderful A.J. Huffman for accepting these two poems, Two Hundred Years to Die and Photograph, Age 11.

I wrote Two Hundred Years to Die after revisiting my old college campus and seeing a friend I hadn’t seen in a long time. It’s strange how time can start and stop like that. It was like being a part of the multi-verse. I could see the younger versions of myself everywhere in this wafer thin moment.

The second poem is based on a true story about me, some neighborhood kids and a dead fish. Growing up is weird, isn’t it? All those horrible sad things that happen.

Again, many thanks to Ms. Huffman for giving them a home.
