Three Poems by Darren C. Demaree

Wednesday Morning #136
The energy
of uncoiling
is brief,
but early
all I need
is that much

Wednesday Morning #137
Then it wasn’t about above
or below, it was about forward
& stasis, which consumes us.

Wednesday Morning #138
The wound
is collection,
struck skin,
that knows
better is more
than a pivot.
