Poetry by William Wright Harris

 the agony of love


the unicorn
horn somehow warm
white ivory
piercing
the shape of a heart or a
hole
eroded into a wall
of brick masonry by
wind & rainwater &
love
blood dripping as warm
as the nude reclining
at mythic hooves or the
indifferent rays of a
watercolor sun dali
hung in the sky
