Devotion at Sunset

Happy National Poetry Month! I’m excited to report that this poem is spending the month of April hanging from a tree in Waterford, Michigan. It will also be printed in their annual anthology. Thank you to the Waterford Township Public Library for giving poetry so much love each year.


Devotion at Sunset

You consisting of two shapes, all angles and asymmetry,
I lopsided heart, bleeding red sea against bleeding red sea,
Sun sipping deep of her constant fiery labors,
Spilling emotion blue, survival orange, spirit indigo,
O I love you fifteen times the tallest mountain,
In all of its presumption, indifference, and solitude.
As long as you don’t love me, my poetry fails.
