“circa (ii)” and “circa (iii)” by Barton Smock

circa (ii)

ghost stories:

sleep learns to eat quickly.  an ice-cream truck

drops in
on the ocean.

circa (iii)

it came over me like a face that maybe god was ugly

a.m., the half-life of a country ghost

p.m., chainsmoker
of blindness

the woman
who drugs
the saw
