Lines to Gregory Corso

Protestant Cemetery, Rome

. . . Let the Tiber remind me of all your quirky songs

shrouded in cigarette smoke,

the odd fragmented verses

rendered stoned and eloquent

from the sofas of friends.

–excerpt from “Lines to Gregory Corso” in A Light Dusting of Breath by Donna Pucciani (Purple Flag Press, 2014). First published in PoetryMagazine.com.
