Sarah Dickenson Snyder

Looking for Signs from My Dead Mother

Here I am again
at my own birthday party

where you’d spin
a blind-folded me,

the papery donkey tail
clutched in my hand

as I reach out for
what I can’t see.

Sarah Dickenson Snyder lives in Vermont, carves in stone, rides her bike, and has three poetry collections, The Human Contract, Notes from a Nomad, and With a Polaroid Camera.
