LOCAL LIT: Two Poems by Tim Brennan

Tim J. Brennan |

Cream or Sugar

You don’t have much sex these days,
you're more like a small part
of other pastimes –

like waltzing,
but not leading.

Later, at a cafe,
the waiter brings coffee.

You look up vaguely with thanks,
even he understands you have needs.


Under Glass

A chilly early evening
moon is rising

fingers brush this city
in pieces.

conversation,
without touching

your beautiful hair falls
everywhere

our air spreads thin
like tiny parts of speech
