Having Forgotten to Put Out Fresh Towels, I Run Naked and Wet to the Bedroom

by Jason Tandon


In the amber glow of early morning
I see the dogwood’s
silhouette

cast upon
the lowered shade.

Rolling and
unrolling the scroll

I don’t know
which
to prefer.

 

Jason Tandon is the author of three collections of poetry, including Quality of Life (Black Lawrence Press, 2013) and Give over the Heckler and Everyone Gets Hurt (Black Lawrence, 2009), winner of the St. Lawrence Book Award. His poems have appeared in Beloit Poetry Journal, Esquire, Poetry EastPrairie Schooner, and on NPR’s The Writer’s Almanac. (6/2017)
