Poem: Deb Smith's one of the most joyous women

Posted on January 30, 2015 | Blog Category:

Deb Smith's one of the most joyous women

I know, painting a living room, retouching

a guest bathroom. Or sitting by her potter’s

wheel, spinning that round table, her hands

 

urging the clay into a bowl or a funereal urn.

I don’t want you to be surprised when I tell you

she’s designed a catalogue in her mind

 

of matching pairs, for pet owners and their dogs

and cats, so they can be stored forever

Proposal

I’m proposing we travel

    to the Edmund Pettus Bridge

in Selma, Alabama

    on the first day we have

 

together on the occasion

    of your retirement.

We don’t sleep in

    as we’d imagined ourselves

 

doing.

    We begin walking

Poem: Things You Kept in Mind

Things You Kept in Mind

         for my friends at Elderly Services

 

Sometimes all you need is to be

asked, to say what you’d store

in a metal box--bury, hide, lock

 

in a safe. Anywhere what you choose

could be found in a day, a hundred

years from now. By somebody

 

who still has your name. Who may not

know what they’re seeing,

Faith in Vermont: On Writing, the Darkest Day, and the New Year

Posted on December 30, 2014 | Blog Category:

Last week, my oldest daughter found a copy of our Christmas letter – the breezy family update that I’d slapped together to send out with our Christmas cards. She sat down at the kitchen table to read it, without my knowledge. (It’s still new and surprising that there are members of our family who can read besides my husband and me, and I’ve yet to take the necessary precautions.)

Town Plow

He cares so much for us he doesn’t

    plow the middle of the road.

He knows the cold can make

    a rink of where we’ll have to walk

 

in the middle of the night

    when the lines are down,

the power out.

    He won’t scrape it to stones

 

freezing to cement.
