Parker Tettleton – 2 poems


I am as smart as the smart parts of me

Greg Sherl
    is dying
He is but
    he’s dry
& well-haired,
for anything
    not in Newark

Greg Sherl
    is headless,
raping Newark
    by yellow strips
of stewardesses
    & I’ll kiss
anyone to know
    if they’re in season



Nine One-Ways Once Upon A Time

Things are
with your name
    in the dark
