BY Timothy Snediker
"oh let me remember you as you were before you existed"
I saw you that night on the bluffs
the lantern lit up your legs
your firm tummy your stringy hair
drawing the photons in you were sucking
the light up with each breath
you got so bright
you were gone over the edge
in free fall
dangling in atmosphere
the water caught you
and I heard you
laughing like a china set striking linoleum
Timothy Snediker is made of stars and fingers of whiskey.
