North Fork Sunday Morning

I miss the long feet that searched for mine
late weekend mornings in our old bed

Jill Bossert

I Gave You

I long
to escape through the drain, through the tiny cracks in the floor tile,
slither behind the stove where the mice make noise

Holly Day

My pen is a rake, moist with unpeeling

on its buttressed trunk filter
time into its ancient core.
