This poem is taken from Stand 235, 20(3) September - December 2022.

Tandy Sturgeon The Blue Hill Cycle
1. That Day

His arms around a broken sack
of potatoes, and barefoot, he
shoves his way up the porchstep.
It is then that the sliver of wood enters in.
Blood at the back of his lids
Searching, please wait... animated waiting image
