Some Recent Poems. Patricia Murphy


I Know This


I noticed

I get side

flipped ov-

er on the                                                                 edge


of losing it


circle a few rods or ords

or hard wide meanings

squeaking high pitch            




                            in            with      tered

                                                   scat-               seas

fill up w the day

cords so discordant


or melodic whale

stomach flops

hearts skip throb


like a porcupine

wobbling a



forgot to hop

possibilities of

possible explanations


things get stepped on

squeezed out

collide with other things


companions make colorful

outer patterned layers

bloated red flowers


push off in space
