    Richie Hofmann

    Summer 2020

    From one room to the next, the gods
    are becoming younger.

    One’s face is broken, but he still holds
    his flute and harp. For a week, I have wanted to be broken

    in your hands, offering nothing
    in return. The earliest pipes made of river reeds

    have disintegrated.
    I worry our hearts are growing cold.
