Issue Thirty-Seven - Winter 2021


By Christopher Nye

For Len Roberts

I the spider
waiting for the cabbage
here among the vegetables.
Strong web
of my instincts
without hesitation
thrown between rows
and over the fence.
If deer break it,
repair is part of life.
And since I’ve learned
patience and humility
at last,
I can wait
till kingdom come.
