>Two poems

>A few groovy poems by Philip Whalen. Many of his poems are on the longer side; out of laziness (on my part), these are on the shorter side.

“Take, 25:3:59"

I’ve run so far in one circle I’m visible now
only from the chest upwards
Any poet who’s really any good
Dances a complicated maze on top of the ground
scarcely wearing out the grass

“Something Nice About Myself”

Lots of people who no longer love each other
Keep on loving me
& I

I keep myself rarely available.
