C.N.P Poetry 

  • Writer's pictureCathexis Northwest Press

i meant to start writing you letters

By: Paul Koniecki

or textbooks on physics for poets

the crunch of gravel

the scratch of correspondence

pages crying out memory turn the world

with garden beer and paper tongues

stepping late into the dark

drunk on honey and love

i swear you had a fruit tree in your yard

the moon

a crown dipped in silver applause


Paul Koniecki lives and writes in Dallas, Texas. He was once chosen for the John Ashbery Home School Residency. He is the Associate Editor of Thimble Literary Journal.
