Leash Of Joy


Poetry by:
ZAN DE PARRY


THREE POEMS 

Zan De Parry lives in Philadelphia, his recent chapbook HENNIE, “A Creation Story,” is available through TABLOID Productions. Within these three short poems, we come to terms with De Parry’s unified poetics – a poetics of austere and resonant diction, with language that remains in the readers mouth long after the words leave. The audio accompaniment is a performance within itself, and a necessary component to the discovery of Zan’s work.



Listen:

LEASH OF JOY


I'm stressful today

Tripped over an erect mop
Cut my hand very bad
Literally shifted the whole meat

Ran around the kitchen
Pouring very precious blood
Stood at a threshold and

Ma, am I okay?

I'd come out to a sky
In a fur coat
Broken-in by a thin soul

Can you imagine?












Listen:

MY DOG


plump
long hair
fangs
short legs
highway (former name)
reversible
like the back of a heart
erroneous
insecure
crying regularly

me and my dog would eat grass together
lie back and think

a bus could take us between towns
through town
even between states

and we go to sleep
dream about tracks

















Listen:

AMERICA


I like the light smell of deer
The sounds of singing
I don't like crowds or clusters

My favorite place on the bus
The middle door, ear
To the bus middle door glass

Flaggers, before raising it
Hold it and blow it
Armstrong blew his to the moon
