Tuesday poem #14 : Cameron Anstee : Local

we are reasonable people with unreasonable organs
the heart is absurdly partial

possibilities multiply under your hands
consequence is welcomed

we walked until our knees ached
and then we walked the rest of the way home

we reconstruct one another as the morning intervenes
I am a citizen of your neighbourhoods

Cameron Anstee lives and writes in Ottawa ON where he runs Apt. 9 Press and is working on a PhD in English Literature at the University of Ottawa.

the Tuesday poem is curated by rob mclennan
