Three poems by Bob Heman


The windows are a different story. Each man has one. They can never be opened or closed.



She keeps a strap in her closet to correct her husband's bad habits. This is hidden information. She kept a priest locked in her basement for over thirty years. There are animals that will never correspond to the drawings the travelers were given. They are allowed to roam free, even in the rooms where the children sleep.



The wolf repeated inside each room they enter. The hunter placed outside each window. A door opens wherever the girl stands. Her basket a gift for someone who doesn't even exist.
