As winter hazes of January spraying
While I was meditating on how
To write this riveting poem which
Seemed to be for someone who

Salvation of a Formalist, an Ode to Entropy
Salvation of a Formalist, an Ode to Entropy

Entropy?
God's universal decree
That I get to be
Disorderly?

My erstwhile boxed-in verse is free?
Wheeeeee!

You never listened,
though each night the rain

by Michael R. Burch

after the sprung rhythm of Dylan Thomas

Here the recalcitrant wind
sighs with grievance and remorse
over fields of wayward gorse

that nothing returns

Visit to Antietam
Alone I arrive, walking from Frederick
over the gaps, across gentle hills
out onto a knoll
overlooking this burnished landscape.
Before me I see countless writhing rows

in terrible rituals mid fire and smoke
darkening the sun.
From distant...

Perplexed me...what was wrong?
As I left the cape with...
