a belated touché for d.a.levy
by Kent Taylor

               you can watch the ones who
               didn't move fast enough
               they are dying
               & they are called Poets
                              -- d.a.levy

Antares guided you homer
 the month
      of the day
      of the dead
when you stumbled
   into your shadow

no one was quick enough
 to keep the sun
          in Cleveland

two thousand miles and
sixteen Novembers
 the night still yields

i only see
 what your shadow covered
  at noon
a bloody flag
left as a bookmark
 inscribed fuck it goodbye
