Sea of Sand

Sea of SandA new book-in-progress by author Nicholas Hallum.
Coming soon! 

A yellow scraping across my skin when
I write the word “sky”

Not sky but scything :
      to let day be scraped out
            by night

— Eleni Sikelianos

Everybody knows that the dice are loaded
Everybody rolls with their fingers crossed
Everybody knows the war is over
Everybody knows the good guys lost
Everybody knows the fight was fixed

Everybody knows that the boat is leaking
Everybody knows that the captain died
Everybody knows…

-– Leonard Cohen
