Weekend Showcase : Hank Archer (Poet)

23 May


Every Friday, 1 creative, letting their work speak for itself.


Hank Archer






Christ! Kandinsky
could hear colors –
the hum of grey
a pin’s drop
or lipsmack
during yellow –
I wonder what it felt like then
to stroll past corner grocers
or girls in dresses walking dogs
more sonorous
I would imagine
than all the words I know
or any song I’ve
learned to copy
off the radio
