My Memoir

I feel something impossibly small

that might be pain

as I slide a piece of paper

under everything

my mother said.

*Memoir is a poem from Curses and Wishes by Carl Adamschick—Winner of the 2010 Walt Whitman Award


My Memoir

offers no salve

only a shrug

and logic.

Everything hangs




the dawn.
