Peter Schwartz

Peter Schwartz has over 150 poems published, some of them in nationally-distributed journals, some printed overseas. He has stories and paintings published on and offline as well as his own somewhat controversial journal that can be sampled at: www.watchtheeye.com. He's also the associate art editor for Mad Hatters' Review and co- founder of www.sitrahahra.com. He lives almost silently in the forests of Maine.

the conversationalist
 
 
forever, a honeymoon on his shoulders
he seduces verbs
into speaking their electric
names
 
inside, who can count the rooms
this wandering groom has cultivated
and cut from
his rib
 
sacrificed, on unbreakable evenings
to know himself he
would sell his
very tongue
