THE MAN WITH THE GREEN BREASTS – by Rustin Larson

Posted on Sep 1, 2017 by in September 2017 | 0 comments

The man with green breasts
meditates, cross legged,
in the forest of charcoal

trees. The branches
burn at the tips
like incense, and

the man with the green
breasts has forgotten
to breathe. Green

deer come to lick
the hands of the man
with the green breasts.

They lick the salt
of his skin and the minerals
in the dirt of his fingernails.

The forest sends a twisting
green coil of smoke
to the heavens.

This is the man’s meditation.
Smoke is the milk
from the man’s green breasts.
