GRIFFIN OF THE NIGHT

I‘m holding my son in my arms
sweating after nightmares
small me
fingers in his mouth
his other fist clenched in my hair
small me
sweating after nightmares.

This is a powerful collection of poems. I recommend them to you.

Nute I didn‘t know that he is a poet. I‘m gonna look for this book tomorrow. 1mo
CaitlinR @Nute I hope you like them as much as I did. 1mo

SharonGoforth @dixi_e Thanks for sharing this! I love his fiction, but haven't read his poetry. I've added it to my stack 😊 3y
dixi_e @SharonGoforth - His poetry is a MUST! His skill with language makes him an amazing poet and I think I prefer his poetry to his prose (although I love both!) 3y

Worth buying for the title poem alone
