From an email I received earlier:

Dear Mr. Daisey-

I heard a feature on your work on NPR a few months ago and wrote a poem based on the piece.

I am a first year MFA candidate (poetry) at Brooklyn College and I was struck by the poetry of your Tesla monologues.

I hope you enjoy the poem.

Many thanks,
Sarah Feeley


he collecting june bugs little baby boy while I fly steel wings
pigeon hone home or alternate nests of wires
nests of feathers and dust spark and blow the brick wide substation

my war for your entire house
my love sleeps in hotel rooms unmarried
my love’s visions stuck burrs in my dreams
