t. h. carter
they came wearing the bodies of children
car, the few scattered and motionless birds, carried off the mountain and sky until the world was empty. Then they turned to her, loosened the front of her body, coaxed her out, and when they asked her how she felt, she smiled, though she couldn't just then remember why.
T. H. Carter lives in Syracuse, NY, where he attends Syracuse University's MFA program and leads poetry workshops for high school students in the community. A Pushcart Prize and Best New Poets nominee, his poems can be found in The Seneca Review, Copper Nickel, Berkeley Poetry Review, and Birdfeast.
