First Thought First Day

Happy New Year 2014!
Cradle the sunny day
As if it were the last
Shackle it!

Resist the briefcase
Dangled by well dressed anglers
For they will poison our passion

Inspire movement
Among the patterns
Stumble upon resistance
Witness devotion

Swim in it. 
Dream
And witness walls breaking

    — Then breathe.


— Kevin Rudd


Kevin Rudd was born in the summer of 1981 in Amarillo, Texas. Son of a rebellious Harley-riding Marine and a kind, southern nurse. Kevin's next destination seems to be unknown, look in the foothills of the San Juan Mountains or the High Rockies if searching. First Thought First Day appeared in the first Bar None anthology in 2010.
