Two Sticks

two sticks
upon the ground
are more real to me than
all the shining hosts of angels
and saints


Written in honor of Stephen Crane’s birthday. Those of you who stop in regularly know how I love Crane’s work–my blog is titled after a line of his, after all! While he never wrote cinquains (as far as I know) this piece is in the spirit of his poetry. I hope he would approve.
