Good Poem By Anthony Robinson - "Blueprint"

Blueprint




I am building a small functional heart

from all the towns in my country

from the country I used to inhabit

from the birds in that country &

the rodents the young couple

from New Orleans like to eat we

are stretching this line because we

believe in monuments & swaths

of grey because we believe in our

powers so that the small nervous

system we built to go with the heart

will fit inside the chests & skulls

of each of us

this is our wish our aspiration

our wide collective breath

Thanks for mentioning my Hellicane site on your own excellent blog. I'm proud to feature your poem among the others there. Was wondering if the writer of this poem would also like to be featured at Hellicane? it is a beautiful piece. All the best.
