Moonshine and Lemon Twists

Selected Poems - 2012-2014

Authored by Brian Mosher

A collection of poems in a variety of styles, exploring a variety of subjects. Since it's almost impossible to describe poetry (a bit like dancing about architecture), here are some samples:

"I wish I could write a poem about
a toaster, like Ray Carver would.
A toaster sitting idle on the kitchen counter
full of crumbs from old pieces of toast.
On the same counter a note,
"goodbye darling", in that
handwriting that he couldn't
help but recognize...."

"...I turn on the stereo to ease the pain
But it's like beer to a junkie
Not enough
Need the mainline injection from the Marshall amps
Need the sticky floor and the crowd of bad dancers with bleary
Need the pounding and the screaming and the sweat
Need the melody and harmony and the energy and anarchy
Order within chaos, the truth delivered in 3 minutes or less..."

"I write her name on the head of a pin
And etch her name on the back of my hand
I scream her name from the rooftop at night
Her name seeps out of my pores like the sweat of a runner in the final
Every song contains her name..."
