Poems and Poetry

Wearing My Poem on My Back | By Tricia Knoll

The logical place, across the broad expanse
of shoulder blades holding it in parens

the heart being too exposed for this story
of how we met in chairs lined up in a row.

I saw you before you noticed me.
Those years unrolled in between

not a burden, a star-banner shawl
bordered in selvages and hope.
