Two Poems/ Andrew Fazzini

rope bed

lay me down

              on that old rope bed

let my last

               and longest breath

pass cradled

                in its warp and weft





the sycamore tree still stands

next to the concrete pad where

the potato house used to be, and

i suppose there’s something i might could say

about permanence and impermanence
