Off Course

This is from a poem is called Hard Labor by Rebecca Lu Kiernan and appears in a 2005 edition of the literary journal, Off Course:

“I would crawl over uncharted shipwrecks,
Frozen tundra, rip tides,
To touch you in the dance
Of bent cobalt willows
Tremulous in the grey December rain.

I would walk the fractures
Of thinly frozen lakes
To taste you
In the cotton candy pink light
Of the year’s final sunset.”

Here is an exerpt from the current edition — a poem called Fashion Secretaries by Chris Crittenden:

“smiles that tilt like teapots
steeping words in fluff,
red and apple-sexed,

limber when pursed.”
