Four More Short Poems

by Michael Prihoda


fear it all

cigars in the basement,
mushroom clarity.

we will
fear it all soon

grow up

spitting over graves
and we’re not trees—

we’ll never grow up

bars

bars either side of the freeway—
when did this become a prison?


poison

the snake of a plug
and trailing cord.

slow
poison.
