two haiku by Donna Fleischer | CT Environmental Headlines

a cup of tea
grows cold on the front walk –
spring morning

robin –
i didn’t recognize you
in the woods

And look again, at  the  Anthropocene renderings of mountains, cliffs, and rivers once drawn and painted by ancient Chinese artists who experienced them as going on forever.

real poem (personal statement) by Rachel Zucker | poem-a-day

real poem (personal statement)

Rachel Zucker

I skim sadness like fat off the surface
of cooling soup. Don’t care about
metaphor but wish it would arrive
me. There’s a cool current of air
this hot day I want to ride.
I have no lover, not even my love.
I have no other, not even I.



About this Poem

“‘real poem (personal statement)’ is part of a series that is interspersed throughout my new book The Pedestrians and investigates, often in light-hearted ways, poetry and poetics, especially simile, metaphor, voice, description, literalism, and confessionalism.”
