Two Poems by Patrick Riedy

today the sun moved
one hour to the east
overnight
when you were sound asleep
curling the toes of your
cold feet
don’t worry love
            dreams can care for themselves

i’m trying to reach
the heart of everything
i’m trying to see
if you can take me there
but my mouth can’t make
every shape
sounds & vowels
            what am i going to do if i can’t use you?
