Two Poems by Kevin Patrick Sullivan

May 9, 2018
Phil Taggart, Ventura County Poet Laureate at www.philtaggart.com invites you to come to downtown Ventura this Thursday, May 10 hear featured poet Kevin Patrick Sullivan at 7:30pm and join the open mic at EP Foster Library 651 E. Main Street, Ventura in the Topping Room where there’s poetry every Thursday. To whet your whistle, here’s two poems by Kevin Patrick Sullivan:

Sleepers
Under the silkwood
Sky of night
We build
Inside each other
A new skin
Something to be
Out in the world
In
 
   Water Has Memory 
You start by breaking your mother’s water
Pushing out into the world
Your time begging to be measured separately
You cling to each moment silent sailing
Gathering your strength harboring your talents
When you are able to speak you begin the slow dance
Your movements carrying you further your language blossoming
Building upon every stubble nothing is left unchallenged
Everything is grist for the mill the heart opens wider
Your embrace is becoming your reach for
Every valley every mountain every roadway
Every creek every river every ocean
Once again you are sailing remembering the stars
You are stardust you are a creature of the Milky Way
You are water remembering the way home
 

Listen to Kevin Patrick Sullivan read his poems and talk about poetry and living in poetry. Cafe Solo Steams is produced by Glenna Luschei, Marsha de la O and Phil Taggart; this was recorded May 2016 at a reading in Ventura that my students and I attended.
