Dailies 11/1/16: papercuts & stubbed toes + a witch + the Weir Farm



Weir Farm – Marilyn Nelson 

Not vistas, but a home-sized landscape,
beloved rooms storied, painted, lived.
A farm bought with a painting
and a ten dollar personal check.

Zero – Melissa Stein

Papercut contracts the whole world
to its sting. A stubbed toe to its throb.
Oh beautiful contusion, is it wrong
to love your annihilation
of everything but you?

Old Witch – Natalie Safir

The three- year-old looks up at me with puzzlement
and guarded fear and won’t come too dose.
