Three Poems by K.I. Press

New Work

Athena

You tried to leap in the fourth month,
a wax doll, from my forehead,
in a disconcerting rush of blood.
This is the first scar.

I was too clever for you, lying,
having hit, I now deduce, the sidewalk,
smarting and stupified. My strategy: relaxation.
That’s nice, I was so tired and now
I’m warm in bed, my head, on a pillow
not unlike a doorstop. Oh.
Rust filled my nose, mouth, and left eye.
Reached up and shut the hole.
Not yet.
Not without a few more scars between us.

 

 

 

20 Ventose: Cordeau

A pulsing cordeau.
A game of telephone.
I’m sending a serious inquiry along the bloodstream.
Along the fantastic lifestream.
The cooling of vibrations when sent underwater, or ground,
grounded in the slow virtual moaning.

Skip rope: obstacle course.
Velvet rope: liminal. Lifeside.
Rope to pull the drowning man from water.
Rope to preserver, head and shoulders through.

Hangman. Language deadly and invisible.
I need to guess the firstborn’s name. Only three chances.
Only one chance. And there it will go away.
