John Swain

At the Ceiling

Moon of lights
on the dark walk
in the tall grass.
A girl in furs
with black flowers
in blonde hair.
I secured balance
in tree movement,
stars dripping.
The dogs bay
in rage at silence
and a trespass
into the fearing.
I struck with fist
at the ceiling
of this red dirt.

John Swain lives in Louisville, Kentucky, USA. Thunderclap Press published his most recent chapbook, Fragments of Calendars.
