Break Up. Poems. Obviously.

These are poems mostly about separation and breakdown but this is not a depressing collection - defiance and hope weave their way through the poems.


12. Wings in this World


I wish I lived on a boat.
The waves could come at me,
and I would not be afraid.

I was four when I was swept out to sea.
I could see the tower, far away.
An angel saved me. He said, not yet.

I remember it well
but I don't believe in angels now
or at least, I don't think I do.

Sometimes, though, a wing,
out of the corner of the eye,
makes me feel very strange.
