a missed voice...

Nichole Shields



Good poet, good friend.


American Hunger

American hunger
would not occur
if not every
but most untruths,
malicious acts,
and un-kept promises
could be consumed

each falsetto
an appetizing morsel
fattening the nation

tipping the scale

          - from Blue Fifth Review, Winter 2001
