The November Sky

The November Sky

the crescent moon
     is a splinter
in the sky

the sun
     is a pimple

and the stars
     are specs of dirt
unwashed from the skin

everything is a burden

--Maxwell Baumbach makes a mean bowl of Ramen. He also edits the Heavy Hands Ink publication and has a youtube channel (Youtube.com/MaxwellThePoet). His first chapbook, "Suburban Rhythm," was published by cc&d through Scars Publications in September. It is available both as a free read and as an ISBN # book. His work has appeared a bunch of places, so google it. He calls Elmhurst, IL his home.
