shame less

Camille Thigpen



crumbling brick building

denudes you with a hand


(you used to touch it);


moss fragments in rhythmic








& a passerby prowled all over


the garden, looking for a person


in the air around you




Camille Thigpen has lived in France, Sweden and Pennsylvania; she currently attends Bard College (New York) while dwelling in Possibility. Poems of hers have appeared in several places, including A Handful of Stones, Full of Crow Poetry, and Inscape Journal; more is forthcoming in Handsome.
