soft facts

A Poem by barton smock

night is the sound of my father’s adding machine.  of mother narrating the life of a stone.  lake is my brother’s action figure learning to swim on a full stomach.  lake is a bird going from dream to dream as a mouse.  hole is anything I bring home that isn’t my body.  home from the city where sisters drink in silence to footnotes of future fictions.
