Vine (new poem)

Thank you to Stoneboat for publishing Vine in their fall 2017 issue, available now.

Vine

my toes, roots

hands, leaves curling

growing into my loves
like ivy on a chain link fence…

I was partly inspired by the sculpture, “The Vine,” by Harriet Whitney Frishmuth (pictured above).

This is the first poem I’ve published that appears for sale in a print edition, you guys!
