Adam Henry Carriere's Winning Submissions to the Nevada Arts Council Fellowship in Poetry
Friday, January 06, 2006
My cake, expatriated, feared
being eaten far from home,
being made of ingredients
Christian bakers wouldn't allow;
my party, exiled, loathed golden silence
where Viennese waltz, be-bop, and
cymbalom don't cotton to karaoke;
and my candles, exhumed one at a time,
heaved to be blown out by desert air.
