- David St. John

from God's Shins

Philip Pardi
Tonight, the uneven darkness is equal parts bold and apologetic. It's the shabby moonlight epiphanies are made for, but I'm not due for an epiphany. I'm due for something lower in my body, something akin to the warming of hands by a mug of something hot.
