"Real Power" by David Henson
 

I think real power

is when I drop

the dollar store mask

on the dresser

after leaving the party

early

and turn to the mirror

but can’t see

a face

or anything really

and I just think

that isn’t a mirror

 

"Sunday Morning" by David Henson
 

which parts of

you are a

church and

where do men in

suits stand around

after worship

drinking coffee

and biting their tongues
