Bullseye

Do we all have a destination,
that some small dot in the middle
of concentric circles, willing us
to stretch the skin’s tautness
over our bones and let go, an arc
of us skimming through air,
seeking a landing deep
into the center of another?

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/
