A sample of poetry performed by Kevin Carman recently at the new Thursday Topping Series..

One

i

me

am, have, and will be

secretly sequestering a silent jury

vital organs all with three parts

that make up the whole

of the first, the second, and the third

distinguishable only

by the luminescent color

eminating from all possible exits

would you like to be smoked

would you like to be smoked

would you consent to be food

for the ones that you love

while the world we know

that world erodes

and flesh becomes a stepping stone

when the sun is enough to feed your bones

when the moon is a river that floats you along

when the stars too are your friends

this is then the time

when things are brought to life

when life and love are one

and one is what we are

by Kevin Carman
