Joseph Massey

PRESCRIPTION


To think through
each word's
particular weather.

To stand
just far enough
outside of the page.

A field drapes
the eye
in limitless revision.

How shadows
that fill the gap
between two stones

imply the sky's weight.


Joseph Massey lives in Arcata, California. His most recent book is Exit North (Book Thug, 2010).
