The Dim Schizophrenia of Owls

Larry Sawyer
Angels are brewing sleep
pillows weep stellar jam

here in a tangle of lawn
misnamed tanagers fold leaves

calendars slip filled with thorn
my mind puddle mends

a clique or brood of dream
at that midwinter height

heaving honey sleep, shake
the cusp of dark notes

as politicians sit in the shadows
tuning lies.
