"Sun Skeleton" by Matt Dennison

Always the garden's ache is eased with rain, the tiny gods' reveille blown quick for a season:

borrowing transport from sunlight

diamond from bird-throat

before God grows bored and shrugs his cloud-shoulders again.

Matt Dennison is the author of Kind Surgery, from Urtica Press (Fr.) and Waiting for

Better, from Main Street Rag Press. His work has appeared in Rattle, Bayou Magazine,

Redivider, Natural Bridge, The Spoon River Poetry Review and Cider Press Review,

among others. He has also made short films with Michael Dickes, Swoon, Marie Craven

and Jutta Pryor.
