2 Poems || David Bartone


APHORISM (SONG OF THE RUBICON)
 
Markers that
make halfway
a home
compare
to breathing
what can’t
take care
for granted
has for
feeling.

OLIVER’S SONG
 
Oliver’s Legos
all of his legos
alive with us legos
golum in legos
lord of the lego rings
legless legolas lego
laser-like legos
ladylike legos
leprechaun legos
lego my legos
littlest legos
laziest legos
lava cake legos
la la land legos
little red legohood
I second my legos
I sleep with my legos
lacunae of legos
I sleep with my legos
I second my legos
little red legohood
la la land legos
lava cake legos
laziest legos
littlest legos
lego my legos
leprechaun legos
ladylike legos
laser-like legos
legless legolas lego
lord of the lego rings
golum in legos
alive with us legos
all of his legos
Oliver’s legos
