This entry is part 26 of 31 in the series Morning Porch Poems: Spring 2013


Something in the hollow
of the ear, some rift
deep in the bone—

and you tip, lightweight:
one ant trying to balance
a load, small bird caught

in a net of rain.


In response to an entry from the Morning Porch.

  1. Heh. Woke with vertigo this morning. Bone in my ear, screw loose or something. Anyway, lovely poem!
