A New Psalm by Tim J. Brennan

One day you notice 
your favorite shirt
is hot red, not blue
the outside porch lights
are shaped like pineapples;
you wonder if today is the day
for that epiphany you’ve been
waiting for all your life
 
Maybe your lover is now Irish,
a lassie who leans her head
slightly to the right when she
kisses you. 
 
Someone knocks;
you eagerly open the door;
a lilied field stretches beyond 
everything you will ever know

Oi ! I’m Jeremiah Walton. For the past ~3 years I’ve been bopping around the U.S. between hitchhiking + rubber tramping, running traveling bookstore Books & Shovels + indie publisher Nostrovia! Press. My focus is in-person distribution at open mics + features + busking. Word of mouth is a fulfilling & feels to be a more intimate promotional process. I’ve featured at the NYC Poetry Festival + San Francisco Lit Crawl + Snoetry Cleveland + Beast Crawl Oakland + This Lil Lit Fest + street corners across the country. There’s a handful of my books floating around the country, but most recently is “From Here Til Utopia” (Ghost City Press). Raccoons + coyotes are my companions. Hope you dig the poems, much love, thank you❤
