2013 Poetry Month #5 – Liminal

9780976718543The following poem was written by Joshua Kryah from the collection “Glean”, published in 2007 by Nightboat Books.

Liminal (your voice so terribly human, its distance)

Charged, the despotic fire banks.

(It was told to.)

Ash arches even further, its single shadow
listless, pre-determined.

Summoned by the great cloud, its remains scattered
in every direction, I stand neither here nor there.

The interminable space, the unbeliever.

Tell me to breathe.
