2 poems by Michele Seminara

Sky Burial

I look so unremarkable
but then I imagine
so do you.

And the secrets inside
that we like to hide
are probably boring too.

So listen
why don’t we share them?
Cut our guts open
and air them?

We can have a sky burial
and invite birds of carrion
to transform
our dark feelings to food.

A Halloween Poem by Moonlight

I want my poems
to disturb you,
creep up sideways
and unnerve you;

sidle into your
peripheral vision
and slither in through
your too thin skin.

I want my poems
to observe you
coolly through
their slitted eyes –

and when you’ve had
enough of them,
I’ll call them
to me again.
