Tuesday poem #439 : Christopher Patton : A MOTH


                     Picasso, The Blind Man’s Meal

of left
ward light on
a clay

born in oil

water on
a table

but for oil
bread and an oil

as if it
were built out
of sight



Christopher Patton’s newest book of poetry, Dumuzi, was published in Spring 2020 by Gaspereau Press. His recent book of translations from Old English, Unlikeness is Us, also with Gaspereau, won an American Book Award from the Before Columbus Foundation. His visual poetry has appeared in Asymptote, DIAGRAM, and Ancient Exchanges and in exhibitions at the Whatcom Museum and the Minnesota Center for Book Arts.
