OVER THE EDGE

Art by William Shenewolf ♣ Poetry by Brenton Booth

300x300 (3)

Hang me with

the angels

while the ice

cream cones dance

on the tightrope

the raindrops mumble

in Spanish

the bulls gallop on the

pineapple moon

hang me with

the angels

while the tap drowns

the sink

the guitar string reads

Fathers and Sons

the photograph no

longer reminds me

of myself

hang me with

the angels

while the telephones

murder the trees

the naked leaves

fly to Brazil

the pocket screams

out for more

hang me with

the angels

while the poets punch

the screens

the chimneys recite

Rimbaud

the water eats the

streets

hang me with

the angels

and give me another

glass

as I walk to

the edge

hoping to find

something

more

than death

this time.
