Surface Tension

from by Joel Cathcart



black light on the narrow waves
guides the deafened lake
large print russian summer sale
the leaning houses close their eyes

squealing infant gargoyles all
fastened to the stonework
spiderweb tribal elbows
witness every occult scale

fade, literate lion
all your delta pages drowned
jade waters rioting
the empty houses fill their lungs
