Dedicated to Mr. Twain I wonder all the places you found him writing "Life on the Mississippi." In a dark-paneled library, in a chair on the third-deck of a paddle-wheeler, or just at home, inventing a confluence of waters and events only he could navigate. All of these places, I'm...

Crow was walking across the mesa in a storm. He wore a long black coat and tall stovepipe hat. “I am lost,” Crow said, and spreading his wings, he flew into the dark storm clouds. Crow tumbled in the darkness of the storm clouds for a time until the storm... Continue reading

I think first we have to examine whether loneliness is even an Event. I guess it is, it happens, but, at the same time, it doesn't. That's what makes it so odd and unquantifiable. Let's (I and the distant you) just assume that it is or there will be no... Continue reading
They lend themselves better to prose, the ones I know, but that's not what I do. They are too lovely and full of detail, too complicated, past description, really, for this scale. I would give you 500 pages as a start, if I was a Russian, and then go on... Continue reading

The stars were a gap. Everyone who ever looked up needed a story to fill it. No one can explain where the Maya or the Inca got all that whole-cloth, but they did. Things are different, we understand them now, but the stars are still a gap. Tell me a... Continue reading
at seven a.m. I have not begun to reap -- harvest of crackheads  cracks of light in the barn wall -- open hospital beds crackhead talks to everyone but me -- alone light and silence unbroken -- staff chatter empty unit new patient the spit mask asks for a... Continue reading
Across Eleven Summers (c) 2016 Eric Lohman there was the first summer, 2004, after we moved to Georgia we found you by the pool tied up in the tennis court abandoned -- we took you home after I put my seal of ownership on you by being dumb enough to... Continue reading

How do the blues know the downward turn of a junkie's form, sagged on the sidewalk against that fence,... exhaustion personified? I heard in their melody a descent in fourths, the chords the basis of loss, of giving up, of not having strength to try anymore. The push back against... Continue reading
Maybe it was the morning after your first surgery, in the freezing cold - I went out to the barn to take care of it for you and I realized with sly smile spreading over my face as slow as melting ice cream, how much I love you. I will... Continue reading

in morning riding time,... my writing time, the trail knows my mind -- leading me past branches of thought and alder, slash pine entwined with sprockets, whirring cogs in time, emotion catches me up and I am held in its glide path still and silent, beheld and held to course... Continue reading
It's 10 p.m. on a Tuesday night and the sky is black. Where are the stars? The few I can see clocked-- in to this night shift, seem to be hanging around the break room and under the exit sign, by the door. Only Mars is high over head, his... Continue reading
It's hard to think of winter in the spring-- the end of spring, just before summer, the coating of snow having long since melted away, explosions of life being everywhere. Likewise, winter remembers little of spring, her bony, croned hands doing their best to curl around a memory like a... Continue reading
for my niece, Celie This was back when she was just a little thing, no taller than a racquet or maybe just slightly. It was the year I had my best shot. I don't even remember now who I was playing, let's say it was Borg. Regardless, I had made... Continue reading
