5 Poems by William Minor

In sacred cultures,
the head was an object
of tremendous significance,
but in normal cultures
it was just a head.

      *

Animals can stand outside for hours.


       *

How does
one investigate
the conditions
in which a woman
might appear.


        *


The oddest use
for a seated man
is thought.


         *

Gentleness
in extreme form
can be
realistic.
