Washing Your Feet

Reader, they are dirty. You’ve come so far / so harshly: bloody miles through silt and brambles, / noxious bogs and mud-fields, dunes of char / beneath the sun-spill—all of it in sandals.

Postcard from Home

The birds in our county were bees / and the bees were rough nuggets of light. / The green ponds we soaked in were trees / and the thunderheads’ bellies were white.
