Tony Robinson 1129 Williamson St., Madison, Dane Co. [Lat: 43.082627, Long: -89.365169]

Wisconsin Spring, 2015

you are sick and tired
worn out and blistered, ready

to feed your heart to the dark one
his warm laughter and soup

remedy for this deep sob—
Tony dead too soon for no reason

the biker caught by the truck’s tire, cross
winds whipping the husks, cold’s

reluctance to unwind—all the buried
bulbs bloated, ripe, listening for

a crack in the earth.
