Chagrin River Review, Spring 2016





























Rhydian wrote as

Bukoski for thirty

years from England

in gin bathtubs smoked

like a salmon in Marlboro’s

and pressed Oxfords


from "Selections from the Long Tu'm"







Little drop of

poison thrilling

kills me kisses



from "Selections from the Long Tu'm"














America’s debt. Gold evaporated

and no one noticed

but fit into character

and these one-hundred

and forty spaces,

something to measure by.






from "Lily the Muse"
