Yet Another Pots Poem Published

Dizzy Dame

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I'm writing a series of poems on living with a chronic illness, and another is getting published in a literary journal called "Pebble Lake Review". I've posted the poem below for any who are interested.




It was a simple change.

Not unlike those birds

in the park, netted and tagged,

tossed again to the sky.

Just as air returns water to itself;

the transaction is mostly imagined

like love or grief.

But the birds knew the difference:

the before-net

and after-net selves,

and I,

before the body?s turning,

and after. Still some aspect

of ghost lies fallow??

the cells learn to speak

only in constellations of scars.
