POETRY FEATURE 17: NATHAN PARKER

*

The Journey Back

after Tolkien, Shelley, Nelson, Eastwood, Housman, Justice, Bishop



Cradling my drunken brother
In my broken arms I tracked

The last cloud on earth after
Deciding the last movie lacked

Cowboys. True, the river clips
Were something to behold.
(write it!)
Michael I love you and wine
Lied. We are just as cold.

Nathan Parker lives in Northport, Alabama, with his wife, Christie, and his two toddlers, Noah and Clara.
