Scattershots from the Clouds
JCD Kerwin

I may stumble ‘neath the weight of these,
these boulders on my shoulders,
but I won’t set them on the earth
to form mountains.

And

I will open wide my arms and laugh,
waiting,
for sneering gods to drop
icicles down from Heaven.
Let them come.

I’ll take the best of all you’ve got.
