Jeff Binkley

I sit 


all desiccated bone born in the black times 

when dead spouses burned down the pantry,

our maple syrup future now ash upon air draft


charred toaster pop waffles 



square over circle

life over loss


life now become

cardboard morning sustenance

and a cup of bitter dirt to wash it down
