wThe Awkward Squad ww wwwwPoetry by Eddie Castellan



wwwwpoem for Claire ww3 May 2009

wwwwIf you give me answers
wwwwdoes that stop questions
wwwwrising from the soul
wwwwlike kites on fire?

wwwwTawny red, tawny black
wwwwtaloned, mountainous and circling
wwwwflexed under the hooks
wwwwand weights of taller deserts

wwwwOr skinny strings of paper ribbon
wwwwcracking and popping, just
wwwwthe fierce and wary lightness
wwwwof a Chinese dragon
