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


robin –
i didn’t recognize you
in the woods

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.”

—Rachel Zucker
