Our feature of Rescue Press’ new anthology of contemporary poetry, The New Census, continues this week and next with new poetry by contributors to the anthology. Today we have two short poems from Eric Baus. You can purchase the anthology here.
The agrarian century absorbed me into a horse. I was busy being a
parable in a film about stormlessness. We wore a pair of grass
glands. We watched the sun give birth to a lamp. We knelt to bury
our glass in the sand.

The accident exposed a tiny song when the floating wires
grounded. The protozoan organ played an undetected tone.
The tranquilized tongue woke up in a cell. The trees blurred
into a seed.
