JIGSAW PUZZLE IN PREGNANCYby Christopher Jane Corkery
Hear Christopher Jane Corkery read this poem (in RealAudio):
(For help, see a note about the audio.)
Here is a beginning to harmony and peace.
All tidy on the little farm?
Are all the farmers sleeping?
See how the miles of rock-piled fence
The pink fits in but the gray confounds.
The little inlet of salty water
Thatched roof, white wash, veneer of order,
The mountains have sat like that for years,
Shall I ride out and tell her to come
I fit in more pink (there's been a storm)
