A Poem by Bill Bill Neumire

by Mark Bibbins, Editor

The New Crusades 1

we underwent a series of tests

we underwent the rain as we tried

to find the right bridge with pigeons

& the sign that said fuck me

I loved her my blood is in the water

& we underwent the bridge

& wore the rain like a glass

coffin that made us

gorgeous by magnifying every pore

Bill Neumire has a book called Estrus.
