Chicagoetry: The Heart Is A Lonely Fucker

The Heart Is A Lonely Fucker

Like a Prairie Falcon landing on my breast,
the God inside me clenches, and your face comes
to me.

You have landed, again a waking dream. As in a dream,
setting constantly transmogrifies, details, red-tails fly
at whim.

You are a solid, silent earthquake. As in a dream,
setting constantly breaks apart. I crawl, clutching

My glass breast cracks. Tonight you shall fly across
the universe, and I will miss you, miss you, miss

The Jack-o-Lantern moon grins falsely a-skim the glass
lake. This black beach is autumn night which lands

This silent tongue, the lake, laps the crystalline wind,
the dim, gold aura of moon crawls obliquely from the

hissing light.


J. J. Tindall is the Beachwood's poet-in-residence. He can reached at Chicagoetry is an exclusive Beachwood collection-in-progress.
