Pg. 57 — RAM SCOOP PILOT by Joshua Gage


I ride my solitude away from you
to the roar and conflagration of stars.
Circuits fluoresce my nights with their song.

I scry my reflections, read runes cast
across the panels by unmined moons.

You are a temple alive on the Earth
incensed by moonlight which carries my prayers.


Joshua Gage

Joshua is an ornery curmudgeon from Cleveland. His newest chapbook, Origami Lilies, is available on Poet’s Haven Press. He is a graduate of the Low Residency MFA Program in Creative Writing at Naropa University. He has a penchant for Pendleton shirts, Ethiopian coffee, and any poem strong enough to yank the breath out of his lungs.
