Thomas O’Connell – Two Headed Lamb

Two Headed Lamb

Love is a two-headed lamb
In the carnival sideshow

The smell of the river
Still on your clothes

A glass of sweet white wine
Sitting on the window sill

Walking through the rain
On the way to Mass

The reason I cannot throw away
A stray glove, of which

I have lost the partner
Stroking the fur lining,

Remembering the tent flap
That muffled the sound of the midway


Thomas O’Connell is a librarian living by the banks of the Hudson River in Beacon, New York. His poems and short fiction have appeared in Blue Earth Review, Caketrain, and The Los Angeles Review, as well as other print and online journals.
