Brush
of slim slurry
slickens
criss-
crosses
clay

                        Paled
                        in cool
                        porcelain
                        a face
                        emerges

                                                 Solid and immutable

Red and blue prayer flags still fly near the river




Katherine Soniat’s sixth collection of poetry—A Raft, A Boat, A Bridge—is recently out from Dream Horse Press. The Swing Girl, published by Louisiana State University Press, was selected as Best Collection of 2011 by the Poetry Council of North Carolina. A Shared Life won the Iowa Poetry Prize.
