Tuesday poem #178 : Michael Cavuto : NO STARS

plucked a stem
right out with bare hands

(Just the leaves wilt in boiling water.)
                           & noticed
              a plant in similar

Two things with no energy to spare
                                     the dead

                                                       after hours
                                       waiting on dried beans
                                                                 a wild onion
                                              & not much else

Michael Cavuto is a poet recently moved back to Philadelphia from Toronto, and is a founding member of the pure sound collective Sex Panic! With Dale Smith and Hoa Nguyen he edits the Slow Poetry in America Newsletter.

the Tuesday poem is curated by rob mclennan
