R L Swihart ~ William Tell Remix

1.

Their Cioranian nights begin outside the Latin Quarter

and outside of France, in a large American beach city

marking time with manic brown waves

2.

Remission isn’t as forgiving as the dictionary would have it—

In lieu of an apple, an apple, they take aim at the heart, the heart—

but both parties survive the verbal buckshot and the happenstance art

(a headboard scatterplot with no correlation, working title:

Folie à deux) is soon to appear at the Getty

 

R L Swihart currently lives in Long Beach, CA, and teaches high school mathematics in Los Angeles. His poems have appeared or are forthcoming in various online and print journals, including Rhino, Right Hand Pointing, 1110, decomP, and Pebble Lake Review.
