HOMAGE TO DONALD JUSTICE

As he began to read, a thin
thread of mucus started to string
from his nostril. It stretched
almost to his chest and, as he said
his songs, only the most faithful
heard the words they heard.

William Virgil Davis: “Donald Justice was a poet of memory and memories. I hope that he would be happy with this tribute to him.”
