The Secret

 

To be
so damned human,
so grateful and alive,
has sadly become a shameful
secret.

 

 

The Cold Space

 

Leaving
her warmth, the dark
morning chill on his skin,
the cold space he has created
remains.

 

 

About Tim Hawkins, US

 

Tim Hawkins once stepped out of a bar in Skagway, Alaska, where two bellicose loggers squared off with chainsaws, and decided to walk to Mexico, where he saw a dead horse burning on the side of the road. He has lived and traveled widely throughout North America, Southeast Asia and Latin America, where he has worked as a journalist, technical writer, communications manager, and teacher in international schools. These days, he mostly stays put in his hometown of Grand Rapids, Michigan. His writing has appeared in numerous print and online journals, most recently in Iron Horse Literary Review, Lucid Rhythms, The Pedestal Magazine, Shot Glass Journal and Verse Wisconsin, and is forthcoming in Blueline, The Literary Bohemian, The Midwest Quarterly, and 13 Miles from Cleveland.

This Tim Hawkins' first Sketchbook appearance.
