Message to the Person in Charge

This imaginary shock at the beginning of time
breaks the procrastination of idle deities
incapable of pushing more than a flower a day
through the graceless spikes of their wounded fingers.
The predestinarian winces when dry ground is mentioned.
The undiscovered sugar of a new dessert
offers up great promise to the devourer of this resource—
but, a rebuttal, nothing palatable is presented.
The oystercatcher’s palatine is vaster
and even wetter than the incessant reign of a crying god.
This bowl of unhappiness, this death in the family,
this irresponsible Girl Wonder catches a glimpse
of an uncommon traffic of chariots—
this container of spirit is wildly crushed by what’s left.

Brian P. Katz has been a factory worker, a waiter, a house painter, a set builder, a cook and a creative writing teacher — and a lousy one at that. He dragged his small family across the Atlantic to Northern England to try something new; but, that "new" got old fast and now they're living in NYC where he teaches at a community college.
