2 Poems by SJ Fowler

{Cardinal Pierleone had children with his sister}

& in the centre of the room,
a mosaic.
A wolf
something in its teeth.
Out stealing voices.
A young girl perhaps,
trying to cry out.
Indeed, it may be a mouth.

{the floating earth}

I have worked up there,
cloud blind,
just once.
When they found me
in the mopping closet
finger deep
in Evgeniya.
