Three Poems: Scott T. Starbuck

In Poetry on November 28, 2011 at 3:08 am

Night Thoughts

How many failed near-Jesuses
like spiderweb encrusted shipwrecks
for each blue planet
out there?

Desert Prophet

Tory says
tarantulas on the road
are mostly harmless
but the pop machines
will kill you.


Swami’s Confrontation Haiku

Old lava-faced man,
your dusty surfboard tells me
all I need to know.
