The Anatomy of a Partition – Jacob Davis

I don’t know how
to speak of structure
when structure is a wall
wished into existence
some matter of will
prevailing against another
you went mad
you said
over a horse
being beaten
of all things
but I get it I
know the difference
between the
living
and the
dead.
Are you afraid of your Nation?
how can you be blamed
but I think you found
your own way
considering
the converse
of “keep out!”
is “stay in.”




Jacob Davis resides in Salem, Oregon, where he works as a bookseller at the Book Bin. He graduated from Portland State University with an English Major and lives a relatively quiet life with his wife.
