Editors’ Note: One year ago today, One Sentence Poems published its first poem. Because our first poem was by Eric Burke, we thought we would observe this first anniversary with two poems by Eric. Thanks to you all for your support during this amazing first year.

Eric Burke

Again, Tonight

Carving the corks
into pellets
for our daughter’s slingshot,

we build a fire
bigger than our fire bowl.



Spamming the empty
space above the threshold,

this single piece of information.

Eric Burke programs computers and writes poems in Columbus, OH.
