Abyss & Apex : First Quarter 2007 : Emit timE by David C. Kopaska–Merkel

Emit timE

David C. Kopaska–Merkel



my face
reaches yours
as we make lightspeed
your answer trails me for all time
I’ll try to hit the right curves and we may meet again


David Kopaska–Merkel grew up in what was once the largest state, Virginia, which for a while stretched all the way to the Pacific Ocean. He now describes rocks in the city where the dentist is king, and has made that joke way too many times. David lives with a spouse, a child, five small furry things, and innumerable hangers–on too small to see with the naked eye. Separate Destinations, a chapbook of his poetry written in collaboration with Kendall Evans, is now available through Abyss & Apex andD+66 Books
