Five things for Jordan Stempleman

"I now propose a new tag: Things which one has read and has been influenced by which are not confined to those paper-bound vessels of the printed word we refer to as books. Let's call these Non-Books. Or maybe Impossible Books. Or Limen Books? It's up to you."

     —J. Bradshaw (tagging Jordan Stempleman)

There was a line
inside a line
of — was it? —
a Johnny Cash
song that
gave me pause.

*

Light &
lights in
the sky.

*

Before the
city was re-
built he would
go up on roof-
tops & look
down on the
advertising
signs that
peered over
the tops of
the smaller
buildings.

*

As the full
moon moves
across the
sky another
page of the
landscape's
manuscript is
illuminated.

*

I
do
not
want
to know
what
the
pains
in my
chest
are
saying.
