Poems by Frank Reardon

AMERICAN BULLET

stacks of books
                      lines unfinished

waves of cigarette butts

       manic depression
in the cupboard

seconds in clock
             ticking

away
                         the song

CHORUS

death sentence of life

   growing daffodil

underneath

      bookcase

rain        holds in     diverted meats

through
                Minot

the chorus
      strikes us all

in the same way

WELL, YOU KNOW

under the

oaks

      the flowers
are rooted
     in open eyes

human
    on human

mouse river
moves
in stillness

of green
                  pollen

tell me     who     we are

says drowning branch

                  half inside
                  half outside.

AWOKEN

break the spine

            love the woman
                       turning       words

inside
                  out.
