when the river is hungry, the river eats by Tyrel Kessinger

Tyrel Kessinger tells it like it is, and it’s only after we’re just about done admiring the clear tone of the bell that we realize the poem is telling us something else, as well. An excerpt:

Horseshit

Remember, just the other day
when we heard that song
the one with the Irish guys,
or whatever the hell they are,
and they proclaim: “I would
walk 500 miles” and then says
he’d walk 500 more just to
be the man who’d fall down
at some girl’s door? Horseshit
you said and we laughed so
hard we lost ourselves to tears.

—Tyrel Kessinger
