M.A.H. Hinton

they are gathering again
the poems

in my online journal
and in the analog one
I carry with me now everywhere

I think of them
as a flock of starlings
gathering on telephone wires

when will enough
have gathered
that their songs
become large enough
to carry them away?

M.A.H. Hinton grew up in Montana and lives in Minnesota. His publications include poetry in Spitball, Temenos, GFT, West Texas Literary Review, Aji, Into the Void, Blue Heron Review, and Emerald Coast Review. He has also published several Western short stories.
