Bill Wolak ~ The Homelessness of Water

Just for an instant,
in the first shudder of orgasm
you’re staring out of a thunderbolt
tasting the homelessness of water
as one whisper at a time
your body vanishes
into directionless light.


Bill Wolak has just published his twelfth book of poetry entitled Love Opens the Hands with Nirala Press. Recently, he was a featured poet at The Hyderabad Literary Festival. Mr. Wolak teaches Creative Writing at William Paterson University in New Jersey.
