Kevin Rudd and the Memory of the Old

...and the Foresight to See it Through.

The meaning insisted upon action.
As the air brought truth
it corroded, cracked and revealed
the place where great things swim.
Behind the bark.
Underneath the strings
that sounded the way.
Beyond the bells
the wind peaked.
The smell of sulfur
the last match.
The night they both sought.
No vision existed
no need
it was grey
the color between the coral
and the air in the night
it was analog
the needle was in the groove.


— 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. Memory of the Old & the Foresight to See it Through appeared in the first Bar None anthology in 2010.
