A Question of Significance


To think that your words
all twisted
and tortured

dripping raw emotion
splatting
on a blank page
make any difference.

Must be an egomaniac


or a poet.
Vincent O'Connor
Applause

In the quiet eventide
I spend my last moments awake
encircled in your arms
listening to my blood’s applause.
Vincent O'Connor's
