  • Like the flowers who grew out of
    your stolen matter,
    I'm just a friendly reminder of the past,
    one who remembers you and laughs
    at memories we'll never share again
    Speak the Word, by M.T. Donovan
  • Ashes rise from fires they light
    as the world finds itself
    in its midnight hours;
    dusty flowers, those blackened clothes,
    brush the air like gentle coughs
    of pleas...
    Reading Water, by M.T. Donovan

Best Poem of Matthew Thomas Donovan

The Remarkable Man

It always seemed so queer to me
That all man’s life is like a flea’s
That comes and falls to springly flowers
And ticks away upon all hours

Remarkable is not a word
That comes to mind to be unheard
When speaking of humanity
But I ask, “What of sanity? ”

Are we not things upon a rock?
Of transcendent reason that we mock
To be ended, and born, a flock
With seconds ticking on our clock

Yet I can’t help but humbly see
Man’s place in this eternity
Of hopes and wishes unfulfilled
But dreams for such grounds to be tilled
