Poetry On Buses: Writing Home

THE PROPOSAL

After the war, orders sent him west.
In tidy lines he wrote:
Come see the ocean, stay for dinner.
She packed his photo and her best dress into a single suitcase.
As waving wheat stalks slid past train windows, 
she closed her eyes and smiled at
dreams of a home.

I have a new piece up on McSweeney's. Invitation for Advanced Placement Testing came out of my fourteen years of working within the AP set. As they say, write what you know.

One Sentence Poems

These appeared recently in One Sentence Poems.

Book Club

After she told us about the lump
we walked to our cars
in silence,
hugging our books to our chests.


Communion

While kneeling, we giggled at
shoes that looked like baked potatoes,
swallowing the thick ankles of spinsters who didn't sin,
imagining the day we could join that line
wearing tight blouses and glossy heels that clicked, resonating through the sanctuary.
