The Poetry Kit MAGAZINE





By Katherine Hauswirth





Beyond the French Drain


The line of blue stone

marks it a place apart


This greener place

that astonishes the crab grass


Here the mossy bed breathes,

yielding and pushing back without sound


Loosing water from spongy depths

into the curled coves between naked toes


Filtered by dense tangles

Rinsed with the best, last rain
