Strong back


Sit up all night; ashes grind
dirt into palm’s confession.

Be ridiculous without shame.

Spiders in silk mills chew
wheat, corn, rumor, stone.

Spiders cry into their beer, John Barley-
corn presses on eyes, on bellies.

Hard heart, yellow hair, strong back.
Lift the glass, tilt the head. Roar.
