Low Tide · Alan Catlin

and the rocks are expelling
their moss from within

as if the green masses
were corpse hair forced

from a primate skull
long after the host dies

In the half-light
between dawn and night

The rocks look like
something that might be alive


Alan Catlin has a new book in the pipeline with Dos Madres, to be titled Asylum Garden after Van Gogh, and a noir, cinematic, nightmare group of poems, Lessons of Darkness from Spartan Press imprint Luchador Press
