1 Poem by S. A. Gerber


daffodil in
the dust
surviving the
rain falling
slow, like
molasses, against
a red
morning sky
of no consequence.
over crashing waves,
call upon
the sort of saint
that can be
bought for
four beers,
to make the
ground sacred.
no person
dies quickly
on their watch.
it takes longer
than it should…
perhaps a lifetime.
