Blue Hole

I suppose little Cherokee feet
once stood where my son now stands,
slightly burning on sun-blanched stone
before hurtling down,
plunging into the impossible iciness
of a mountain stream.

James Hamby is the Assistant Director of the Writing Center at Middle Tennessee State University. He fears bandersnatches.

Sunbeams at Dusk

In the living room
where my mother kept
her porcelain cats and angels,

motes danced in slanted sunbeams
as dusk gave way to shadow.
