Hi! I'm

Vincent O'Connor

I Write All the Things



Random Acts of Poetry Contest


Chest-deep in the river warm rain washes me whispering forgiveness.


Now only the river knows
the depths of
my sins


but ask it about them
and you'll get no answer


just the sound it makes
as it lulls and upheaves
widens and deepens
scours and gnaws and bores
through the earth


and delivers them to drown
in the depths
of the sea.
