The poetry of Devon Balwit

track 3

lugubrious
Sunday bells

and shrill
eyas-scree

penetrate
fascia—

always more
than I know

what
to do with,

but less
than I need.

 

 

 

track 5

before gestating
furious wind,

venom floods
our venous

highway. before

uttering the un-

(re)tractable
word, the mirror

levels
its accusations.

we,
a mobius

of destination and
starting point.
