Today's poem is by Allyson Paty & Danniel Schoonebeck

Torch Song: Mad Song

The wind wants me to lose
my mind again william
The wind and the boy
and the chain I see him
dragging down the street


Circle an owl and they say
he will wring his own neck
A screech so like the storm
when it carries off your voice
your face in its mute vigil
