Distances

– Renga Round
By Lina Ashcroft,  Maysa Peterson

dried grasses on the fields of sorrow
smooth the path for the wounded,
but yes, yes, we still believe that
there is some reason or another
for each and every step
carefully placed footfalls leave no
mark to signal your presence
while grasses scrape your ankles
thoughts wonder to far off places

horizon-line
