Vigorously feeling vital everyday...
Every minute...every second...come...

Kin
by Michael R. Burch

1.
Shrill gulls,
how like my thoughts
you, struggling, rise

Distances
by Michael R. Burch

Moonbeams on water?
the reflected light
of a halcyon star
now drowning in night...
So your memories are.

Footprints on beaches
now flooding with water;
the small, broken ribcage
of some primitive slaughter...
So near, yet so far.

Nestling between ridge and bluff
Amidst the folds of a foreign

Upon which stands...
Crumbled stone walls
With an exposed slate roof in
