Sarah Dickenson Snyder

On Leaving

I will miss
even cleaning
the lint screen
each time I do
laundry, feeling
the mesh on my fingertips—
doing something I know
will lengthen the life
of a machine.

Sarah Dickenson Snyder has three poetry collections, The Human Contract, Notes from a Nomad (nominated for the Massachusetts Book Awards 2018), and With a Polaroid Camera (2019).
