Chapbook Update 9: Elizabeth S. Wolf

This is excerpted from Inspired, written by Derick LeCompte. Mr. LeCompte resides in at the South Woods State Prison in New Jersey. I like the shape and movement; it’s a very visceral moment.

At A Time

Moments flash by

          grazing skin like the wind

                    moving that one hair on an arm

                              bringing a flinch


What was that?


Not an ant or a tick

          nor a fly or pin prick

                    merely a second being erased 

                               in the passage of time
