Written in Albuquerque (living on Gold SE with Sondra Tudor and teaching at the University of New Mexico), September 1985: for Alex Bradley. I thought this was an erotic poem till I read it to a vegetarian. Published in my books Too Little to Kill and Wings of the Gray Moon, and in Conceptions Southwest.
Now those kisses of hers
were each one like a plump little
roasted bird whose melting meat
you could tear with your teeth
off a parcel of stemlike bone.
You could smell them coming.

UPDATE, 2015/4/23: The book page is now set up with the changes. You can order "god-chaser," "Complications" and "Yossele" directly from me with payments processed by Paypal (no account required). You can still order all of Robert Arthur Reeves books except "Yossele" through Amazon, along with some journals featuring our poetry. Also check out the new digital poetry page for a free ebook of "Yossele" and free audio poetry from "Complications" and "Hush."
ORIGINAL MESSAGE: I’m taking “Yossele: a tale in poems” (chapbook) and “Complications” (CD) off of Amazon in a couple weeks, but don’t worry ;), you’ll still be able to get both through outerchildpoetry.com or in person.
