Forgiveness

Forgiveness

by Michael Madden

Where you can’t sell yourself the dream

In a two-chord groove

A spine twisting itself

Toothache breeze, parked boat, tipping

Is it a video? 

A google search I did at 11:39pm: when to stop seeing yourself

Spirit rise, bone enter, tent and sleep

Make death blushYou sidelong glancer, shy to dance.


Michael’s work can be found in Into the Void Magazine and other places. He holds an MFA from Spalding University.
