NOT PORCELAIN

by Katherine Soniat

that night                 we came close
to being more than reflection

Bent ray of light
                            your eyes on mine      and

(I speak to you now     not to a child)

ready                         to let                       fall
to the cusp           the urge                 the forge
                   another’s heart beating        

the sound that makes anything possible




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. Her work has appeared recently in Women’s Review of Books, Hotel Amerika and Crazyhorse, among others.  She teaches in the Great Smokies Writers Program at UNC-Asheville.
