Poems By Jeremy Rich
She

She speaks
All soap and steel
Like fresh rain.

Dusty lips
And
Ashy eyes.

Crisp
Like wet finger snaps.

Icicles inhaled in
Nostrils.
Bloated lungs
Exploding in roars.


Blinking at the Sky

Dancing trees’
Leaves
Applaud the bullying
Breeze.

Whispered through your clothes.

Slow blinking eyes
Freeze framing
The skies.

Cool
Cobalt
Canopies

Fluttered down blankets.
Top
Two chair hideaways
With new shoe swiftness
And
Knotted laces.


Jeremy Rich has published five poems in collections like Watershed and Take Back The Night. He is currently an eighth grade Language Arts teacher in Colorado, but was a long time chef in California .
