I texted your landline recently.

It’s a mistake
to believe I can reach you.

There’s too much opportunity for
empty exchange: a funerary algorithm,

a perforation, a prairie, a prayer.

Are we the krill in the waveform?

I’m ashamed,
sifted, displaced, tracked-out, fenced-out.

Arriving to the slag:
airborne seed.

A community.

 

Jennifer Metsker’s poetry has been published in Beloit, Birdfeast, Cream City Review, Gulf Coast, The Southern Review, The Seattle Review, Rhino and many other journals. Her audio poetry has been featured regularly on the BBC Radio program Short Cuts.
