Anger

Honorable Mention, April 2014
Judged by R.T. Castleberry


worried
your name is missing—
it circles
in the shadow-world,
a wind-blown ghost

a salamander
crawls up my skin–
my tongue
tangles with aphasia,
ready to confront

his mouth
full of fumes –
I blaze up
like the ruff
of an offended bird

shadows
prisoners left
on the wall —
        scattered
in a mass grave


a fine piece very similar in style to “in an open field.” --R.T. Castleberry
