A Poem By Bo McGuire

Super Moon

i take the feeling of you—stomp it out with my black throat— throw it down the cement hatch

it bleeds in gold rushes

i’ll be up all night—moon headed—stiff as the wind i sniff until i have enough desert in me knifing the boy inside a man—i moan

this is how i know i am cowboy—my bones screaming a strut to the sinners’ shrine

in the barrio—ghosts i used to know who won’t moan me now—i’ve become the mirror i watch the moon pull back my skin
