Jack Hodil


It could have only
risen from the dirt
by force,
breaking through and out
of the sediment.

But we were there too long.

What crawled out
from that earth
could never be reburied,
and, in the end,
the soil had nothing for us.

When not writing, Jack Hodil can most often be found avoiding school work, battling inanimate objects, purchasing cheap packs of cigarettes with loose change, or watching cage fights with his action figures.
