/20 O.B. Hardison Poetry Series Brochure by Peter Eramo - Issuu
Believe it, this is easy reading with smooth flowing verse that moves easily, never boring. There are three rules of storytelling: only tell a story if you have to. A story is a two-way mirror.

If, when this awful thing is done And I am cast upon some foreign earth To wander senselessly among the slaughtered, Gather up the fragments of my soul And build it piece on piece again Into a thing fit for God to behold, Will you be there to watch with kindly eyes And make a friendly place of death and ruin?
House-trained, but not entirely.
As all the doors in the world grow heavy a big white bed is being put up in my heart. Good thing half-time is over.

But sometimes something catches — there, you can see — he tilts his head, surprised. Jade Mountain Press. I loafe and invite my soul, I lean and loafe at my ease observing a spear of summer grass. Or so everybody says. Each is one more thing she refuses to control. Stained sweaters, new smells: signs she will soon lie down and refuse to get up, which makes the daughter want to shake her back to her senses and the mirror, where she once stood, nostrils flared, like a racehorse knowing its power.
My laundry is trapped inside a crime scene. I always remember I drink black coffee. I drink black coffee; police cars scream by. Has it been half an hour yet? More filters.
