Poetry by John Sibley Williams

Not Even Names



left night’s sleepless wake


but forgetting

what is still being said


and an open mouth

expecting to be filled


and a homeless dog

pawing up earthen roots dark


yet no darker than morning’s,

haunting the borders


of a virgin cemetery

we may as well call a garden,


not even names

to lose oneself in.
