Lars Palm: 2 Poems Published

 

 Untitled

woods are full

of hunters in

brightly coloured

vests

          & there's a

siege of power

in your land

          hand in your

arms

          reaching

for something

on the top shelf

when maybe a

ladder would

be in order

 

Poems by Lars Palm (Sweden)

Published in Issue 32.

 

 Untitled

crossing the border

crossing the river

 

suddenly running into

 

this person who never sleeps

who has no need for sleep

 

singing under a rude sun

 

welcome to tijuana

por el coyote no hay aduana

 

singing under a manic moon

 

waiting by the bank of that same river

for a cloud to cooperate

 

so he may swiftly

 

cross the river

cross the border
