Domestic Dispute After Reading Some Stephen Crane Poems, by Joseph Milford

Joseph Milford
DOMESTIC DISPUTE AFTER READING SOME STEPHEN CRANE POEMS

We had a fight
a mutual tantrum.

I banged the guitar
like an instrument of percussion.

Strumming, cursing
an oblivion until my hand bled

Profusely
a prolific poetry.

“You are bleeding
on your guitar,” she said.

But it’s my guitar,
I said.

In some desert somewhere
I must have been

a very proud man.
