The Katherine Factor

The Katherine Factor

By: Michael Igoe

On pain of first light
we made the contact
in sudden misgiving.
Glancing at images
of the ages of faces.
Something is happening,
after what came in April.
It’s easy to see them,
as soon as they whirl
the jinxes in glasses
along with a takeover
of the rosier witnesses.
The timeline specks,
whose detailed magic

stained the pages.
