Two Poems
Andrew K. Peterson

Interviewing a vast grey space

-- Do you seek to overcome
the new subconscious culture?

--  (laughing)

-- ...whose scholarly research
creates such magnificence ?

-- (laughing)

-- such openness, and cruelty
to human things?

-- (laughing)

Burning Flute Origami

but here like
leaves , lighthouses
the eyes . needs
small, scratched
carry hard ships --
"I want" --
apple salt navies
twisting gently ,
ruining along
selected inscriptions --
lonely walks
homeward seascapes
in a soft dress
the watchwomen
pass . No selections
for a burnt shingle
gone to seed,
toward flame
