Thin Blood S.D. Parsons Poetry

Published in Issue No. 7 ~ April, 1997

There is where our shadows lie,
dark corners of afterthought
bound like hostages.

Thin blood once bubbled
so joyfully. In dreams
we sing butterfly smiles

grin at nothing in particular.

There is little here.

Only the distant echo
of a lover’s heartbeat.
