4 more poems from Cleremont: A Childhood In Tanka

stars shimmering on
his purple robe
I love the runic picture
in that antique book

          Published in Undertow Tanka Review

kids don’t care                      
five steps ahead of me
on bikes
roller skates double dutch
I crash and skin my knees

Victor Polumbo                         
hides matches in his shoes
braggs about burning
a whole vacant lot
he haunts my dreams

           Published in Bright Stars #5

I run wild                                 
in the cemetery
with my ghost friends
mother calls me “morbid”
