Paige Foster

Pea Shoots

If you moved to Maine
to become a summer farmer,
I’d bring a book to the markets
and spend hours under the beating,
humid sun,
watching the fair-weather wanderers
peruse your hard-earned fruits,

and when the winter came
I’d bundle up
and make us coffee
and wait for spring.

Fascinated by the multitude of ways humans communicate, Paige Foster spends a lot of time trying to coax various languages and mediums into playing nice with her.
