Michael Neal Morris

sir optimist says
this is the 1st day
of the rest
of your life
what rest? what life?
dick o clearly hasn’t read genesis
otherwise he would know that
after that first day
-well the first day after the first week–
a lot was going downhill

jane o can’t get through revelation
–reading being so hard–
where things get made new,
but not by human hands or will
