A Poem by Prairie M. Faul

Prairie’s poem, “I THINK THERES ALWAYS A SUBTEXT TO COMPLIMENTS AND IT MAKES ME A BAD CONVERSATIONALIST,” will be published in Apogee Journal Issue 09

I dream of walking through crowds of men and wake up relieved I’m still alive

In the sunlight
A clavicle
Is often mistaken
For a shelf
& men will rest
Their keys
& half packs
Of cigarettes
There
Saying
You are home
Be careful
Of being
Anything
They have
Names
For it all

    Black and white image of Puerto Rican poet Salvador Villanueva as a young man. He has coarse black hair and beard. He wears a white button-down shirt with rolled up sleeves at the elbows. It seems he is gesturing to someone off-screen in the middle of conversation.
