Poem: Childhood Home

I beg to move back in, even though
the ceilings have been lowered and I am too
tall to walk inside. I will crawl instead.

-Stephanie Palumbo, Cellpoems

It’s not the bed that’s a boat

It’s not the bed that’s a boat

but sleep. On a rumple of waves, two           loosed canoes.

Soon I’ll find you
in your wooden ribs.

I’ll tie a rope. I’ll climb on.

-Corinna McClanahan Schroeder in Cellpoems

I thought you would make things certain
Like a window nailed shut to the sill.

Gulls, Too

Gulls sensing the fisherman
pulling the

fish from the nets.
This is how I mourned you.
Swimming to the cave, letting the birds
near me.
