More from Featured Poet Daniel Watkins

Daniel’s poem from yesterday was Stalemate — interview and the final poem tomorrow. In the meantime, enjoy!


A room in the dark. Like the finger that finds the best track on the album, the eyes that locate the best passage of the book without the mind’s assistance, a room in the dark is work for the arms that commit it to memory in light. Outstretched like the living dead (as comfortable in the black), the hands of a pianist move past chairs and electronics to the pointing digit of the door. Push. Pull. Out of the dark.
