A poem in the style of Cid Corman

Although I've only read Livingdying, and a few scattered poems on the Internet, I really enjoy the poetry of Cid Corman (also see here, here, and perhaps even here). Here's a poem I wrote in an attempt to imitate his style:


breath-born
beard bristle
icicles

unfamiliar faces’
sidewalk smiles

late night
dim light
daydream

never famous
never rich

whispered promise
blown kiss
