I HAVE BET EVERYTHING -

my life, my life –
on this drifting blue, this

one-note sound of burning-silver flute that
calls along nerve passageways,

calls through my atoms like
birds of a kind, shifting,

poised in a sky of tears, calculations,
laughter, remembered days.
~ Tim Bellows

A Note by Allegra Jostad Silberstein,
Poet Laureate for the city of Davis, CA 2010-2012:

"In Tim Bellows’ poems, we find a singular brightness––and a willingness to bet his life on the 'one-note sound of burning silver flute.' His work ranges from tender spirituality to embracing plants, soil and stone. In spite of occasional 'turquoise confusions,' he is willing to risk all to explain the inexplicable. Exploring the musical voice of this poet brings unexpected rewards."
