Favorite Quote:
There is freedom waiting for you
on the breezes of the sky,
and you ask “What if I fall?”
Oh, but my darling,
what if you fly?

~Eric Hanson


The yellow band

of the hollowed-out man

gleamed in the sun

of the mid-summer gun

 

And as he fishes

in his bucket void of wishes

he tries to reel in some love

for the murderers above

 

the one on the throne

and the one who paid our loan

the man who took his wife

and the God who gave him life

 

the faces run together on his fish hooks

but straighten out as he tells the assembly about how his faith shook.
