Twilight

The clouds swallow the sun,
grayness entering almost shining
as evening curves in—a keepsake
in a locket, a little house for memory.


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). https://sarahdickensonsnyder.com/

At Home

September then
and she missed them—
a daughter to love
to cook for, a son
to follow up a mountain—
her shut-eyes imagining
their palm-sized hearts,
how they once beat inside.

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.

Newsworthy

An alligator just killed a woman
in South Carolina out for walk

just as I was today, the loop giving me
two views of waves of mountains and the mist

rising from the White River below,
just out on a dirt road,

the sound of stone on stone,
three deer bending their necks

toward the wet grass,
looking up as I pass.

Sarah Dickenson Snyder has two poetry collections, The Human Contract and Notes from a Nomad with recent work appearing in RHINO and The Sewanee Review. https://sarahdickensonsnyder.com/
