THE EVIDENCE: A Three Poem Chapbook




The Evidence

A Three Poem Chapbook

Red Shuttleworth


As the immortal songwriter/singer Hoyt Axton once noted, A lot of people are walkin' round with tombstones in their eyes.  The funny thing is that Axton came up with that perception before Facebook appeared.

To what extent are we alive and to what portion are we just passing time?  Red Shuttleworth offers a (limited edition) chapbook to look at The Evidence.

Today the Sky



Today the Sky

has less breath to share.
Iron + oxygen = an old man
jogging, running laps
around an imaginary farmhouse.

It is time to knock down
the older stucco walls
in my spirit house...
time for waterfalls,

scarcely sun-warmed.
We have seen these falls
in travel posters and flickering
bad-color TV travel shows.

The old stucco walls
are drive-in movie screens.
Our life stories are condensed:
venison rye bread sandwiches.

Today the sky is a luxury,
even the gunpowder-dark clouds
momentarily hiding pure angel-blue.
I want to use the word Precious...

and claim that I have fallen in love
with being alive for the second
or third time.  But this impulse
will soon be spilled milk.
