Heme

Van Gogh
appreciated it,
found colors
surface
in his own liquid
like long-lasting
deserts
with suns
eternally risen-
the crow's delivery
more tell-tale
than that of the stork.



Scales

Flesh an outdated
tattoo that used coherent
measures to speak.
Now it reads
like an old phone book
with numbers
used for lottery and the
pages sink, leak.



Lack of Perspective

He drops his compass,
the earth's axis betrays him
in this scene, his life on a reel
for casual popcorn nights.
He works his lonely work,
the eyes of everyone
peer out from the pines
like solemn owls,
confined, he doesn't know
why
they are all looking.



Joseph Veronneau holds a BA in Psychology. His works have been published in outlets such as Offerta Speciale, Ditch, Counterexample Poetics, Lost and Found Times, Otoliths, and many others.
