"St. Patrick's Day" by Andrew James Weatherhead, WEST 10TH Editors' Award Winner in Poetry (2009-2010 Issue)


St. Patrick's Day


Manual fixation

                         isn't really a thing

                                                      but I have it

I think
 
             this poem would be better

                                                      written in crayon

There's something sloppy
 
                                        in the way
                                                         
                                                         you present yourself

in the way
  
                your little sister
                                                   
                                         got shiny and fat.
