I haven't posted a poem draft here in a long time. Haven't been drafting that many poems, truth be told. I'm going to post this even though it's a first draft, just for shits & giggles, and I'll take it down in a day or so (even though I'm not sure this blog has many readers anymore).

I like this a lot, so many beautiful images (at least until the turn).

I'm sure I'm not the only one still reading!

Your poem makes me happier than student-brought hot chocolate at the reference desk! This is so powerful!
Thanks for posting :)

I am still reading and this was a wonderful poem (first draft or not) it takes you through a journey with such imagery!

Not sure this blog has many readers anymore? (Confused cat expression.)

I like the poem, the draft. Particularly moved by the lines "To love is to leave. She remembers/that much. She prepares her body/for migration."
