Christopher Oie Keller- A Poem


You reveal a will
in trickles of rain
on a car windshield.

You orchestrate events
into a masterful opus.

You roll your own dice,
weighted with justice,
across compassionate felt.

You topple idol after idol
behind their music
and in front of cameras.

You speak through booming voices
otherwise quiet and inconsequential.

BIO: “So You Think You Can Dance” reject Christopher Oie Keller earned his MAT from Western Oregon University. A former Victoria’s Secret supervisor, he now substitute teaches in Portland. In his "spare time," he directs student plays and performs in community theatre. His work has appeared in publications such as The Delinquent, TrainWrite, and Right Hand Pointing and will be appearing in The James Dickey Review and The African American Review.
