Two poems from Todd Swift

My Father In Hydra
by Todd Swift

Father that was,
Night you bother
My sleep, why?

Once you banged things,
Didn’t you come to me
When I was a child, to

Ask where the friends had gone?
I wish you a solid death –
I kiss your red face.


A Stoic Writes A Love Song
By Todd Swift

It isn’t different to die
Or swoon; both times
Someone will cry out.
