Darren C. Demaree

Wednesday Morning #19

Muddy, my un-innocence
is without honey, without

a buzz. Sober, I claim
these sounds as nectar.


Wednesday Morning #20

I want the crumbling
meat of stars

to roll my hands in,
show you hope exists.


Wednesday Morning #21

How righteous
it feels
to linger
in the ecstatic?

More cloud
than lightning,
you should
