Michael Queen's Poems

“Swans, when they have hard luck in the fall time… they can just go right through the sky to heaven without dying. Swans are the only big animals that God made that can go to heaven without dying.” 

- Charlie Yahey, Dunne-za Dreamer

one cob less this April
perhaps an accident northward
some stalking misfortune
a contrary wind

three and a half pair
nicker at new shoots, await
retreating ice

wholly beautiful
the odd pen frets at stubble
in the long rays of darkening red sunset

how brilliant her plumage!
how supple her long white neck
inclined to the horizon opposite

toward a more delicate shift of light
