KEITH KENNEDY

 

 

 

Keith Kennedy

Keith Kennedy is a writer of writings and a reader of cereal boxes. He is a Pushcart and Rhysling Award nominee, and his mother still think's he's handsome despite the weight gain. Keith lives in Vancouver, BC with his busty wife Nancy.

 

 

 

 

 

Calamity

 

 

“It is calamity,” I agree

but dive in anyway.

Water wraps me, freezes

and thaws me,

air exploding from lungs

stretched taut

look up, see sunlight,

wait to breathe,

Rise – to the clatter of

the world.
