Saint Billy on My Birthday
  • Saint Billy on My Birthday

  • the voice
    your snowed mute muzzle in winter
    period the expanse from the rock is white
    30 years round the muscle and one hoof
    is white in its period

    the horns sound
    the tunevalance
    a path and its dimensions

    that a tongue’s dallying colors
    the muffler the snow meets
    that a hand is awhile in the sun
    from salt to lichen to fluke to back
    to me
    birthing aloud buh buh ill ill ee
    (poem by Adrian Kien)
