Poem of the Week: Allyson Paty and Danniel Schoonebeek

Posted By Saeed Jones On December 7, 2012 @ 5:30 am In Poems of the Week | 1 Comment

TORCH SONG: QUIT SONG

Men isn’t there always the dead
letter office yes wasn’t your wage
a hogwash wage & there’s always
a furnace waiting for men who’ll
burn our undeliverables for pay

Eureka if you want to look past
the mist back into the timberland
you squint like you’re muscling
your way through the scab yard
& wish on your fly ash at the gate
