Wayne-Daniel Berard

 

O’er
 

Interesting on
this side of the
river. Pretense
is shed happiness 
becomes joy anger 
is wrath everything
is king jamesed except
love stays love far
across the still waters
the notes that pass 
for music flag and
blot across the page
of day while here
timbrels pulse life’s
own eardrum and 
the vast sweet inhale
before shofar is the
real love song.
