Charlie Eliot Winters



by Charlie Eliot Winters


I am the wet, black coffee grounds 

splattered across the kitchen sink

the dust, the hairs on the floor

residue of something else

 something I was never really a piece of

 until I hit the ground

I am down, down the drain

 busting a pipe here and there

a shopping list

crumpled, fallen from someone else’s pocket

no idea what I said

no idea what I told that pocket-wearing,

 list-writing stranger to buy –

scuffs on the sidewalk

chalk scribbles

dowsed cigarettes, emptied bowls

 ashes, ashes in piles –

 in heaps –

in uniform rows


Poet’s Biography

 “Charlie currently resides in Toronto, Ontario where he is pursuing a degree in Photographic Preservation.  When the nitrile gloves come off, he works on his slowly but steadily increasing collection of poems.”
