Bob Hicok Woman Poems

  • 1.
    Drunk, I kissed the moon
    where it stretched on the floor.
    I'd removed happiness from a green bottle,
    both sipped and gulped
  • 2.
    A bee in the field. The house on the mountain
    reveals itself to have been there through summer.
    It's not a bee but a horse eating frosted grass
    in the yawn light. Secrets, the anguish of smoke
  • 3.
    Nobody I know is a god. A mother and son
    fall into the river's million hands, the river's

    with the woman I found there,
    called her honey, mowed the lawn,

    shadows from his porch lest night
    pull the long limbs of sunlight
