new from above/ground press: Each Acre, by Megan Kaminski

Each Acre
Megan Kaminski

morning rain falling summer dark
bones to body   body to bone
I hear each dropfall each rivulet in lawn
coursing toward street to gutter
train-call in the distance calling me back
yellowed houses at the end of blocks
dead-ended on train-tracks 
whistle through summer nights

published in Ottawa by above/ground press
