Corey Mesler, “The sickness in the morning”

The sickness in the morning

takes its toll. I

live in dark. I don’t want to

speak about it. I

want to speak about it without

cease. I want you to

wait with me, here beside

this river of flame, this desert.

COREY MESLER is the author of six novels, three books of short stories, three full-length collections of poetry, as well as numerous chapbooks of poetry and prose.  John Grisham once blurbed one of his novels, as did Lee Smith, and Marshall Chapman. He and his wife own Burke’s Book Store in Memphis TN. He can be found at www.coreymesler/
