Ginger Teppner: As Warmth Penetrates

Fall '13 TOC

meant to mature

by impression

alone, I penetrate myself

birds wing their way


so I wing my way     myself

maybe I press taller then

a colorless substance,

bruise more absent than blue

where light finds its enter

in a dark-haired child with biggish ears

head sparrow cocked to one side

she listens for birdsong,

thicket ballad,

cloud refrain
