Happy Monday, readers. Without further ado, here's the poem of the week, by David Highsmith.
for Scott Taylor
green light diffused within a fog
Irish parade cancelled in a plague year
warmth first, then time
spread out among the consequences
snaps loose into sensibility
"the wind that shakes the barley"
day to carry us back
carried then, as arms take in sky
swift voices in snow
silent herd, church & steeple
within a closed hand
carried on the wind
--from your wilderness & mine by David Highsmith, BlazeVOX [books], 2009
