Study for Jacob Wrestling the Angel 1876 Léon Joseph-Florentine Bonnat Detail

I’ve wrestled angels
X    My entire adult life
X    So I’ve seen many
Beautiful hard cocks but not
A single feather—not one
X    Angels like me seem
X    To be the earthbound fallen
Dust of long-dead stars

Depth Charge: Another experiment in Mirrored Tanka (5-7-5-7-7-5-7-5). This poem was sparked after reading Le Combat avec l’ange/The Combat with the Angel by Jacques Prévert.

A new chapbook, as close as the clouds by Andrew Grimes Griffin, is available for free reading online and/or download.
