Gregory Vincent St. Thomasino







prompts and to shove
that ever was, devotion to small things

being first, and being given
that ever was, and was often, in event

to be so, to be certain
is never simple, or romantic

when lifting high
has still not found, has not its own

when lifting high
of any sort is lifting high

as much to what is said
with open roof, to open sky

rebuilt, in part or limit
will assure, and can alone

or in so far as he, these problems
how it is, that while some see in him

some refuse to see in him a philosopher
or as to what constitutes a philosopher





Gregory Vincent St. Thomasino's poetry has appeared in Barrow Street, The Germ, jubilat, Washington Review, Xcp: Cross-Cultural Poetics and online at BlazeVOX, can we have our ball back?, GutCult, hutt, In Posse Review, and Rattapallax--FuseBox.
