Lovers of God
hold up the eye

as proof.

argues intention
they say.

As though
nothing complicated

has ever
accrued from

plain old
stupid neglect.

Look at me.




Christopher Todd Matthews currently lives in Philadelphia, but they will make him go back to Virginia. He seems to be writing a book of monster poems. When not writing monster poems, he is endlessly revising an article about Victorian fashion or letting his daughter cover him with temporary skeleton tattoos. He enjoys carbohydrates and hiding behind things.
