Welcoming Party

by Joshua Trotter

Is this what I've been traveling toward

dodging rocks and reefs at funereal speed?

I see no dish of milk, no welcoming lips

just this beach—palms outstretched—and the abyss

of all I've missed, winking from every bead

on every rain-whetted, wind-brandished blade.


  1. Dear Distracted,
    Divine, as always. . .

  2. I feel the disappointment...great poem!

  3. droplets of sadness...smiles....
