queen anne’s lace in august
Passing The Unworked Field
Queen Anne’s lace
is hardly prized but
neither is it idle,
look how it
stands fiercely
on its thin stem,
how it
nurtures its white budlets
with the
gift of the sun,
how it
makes for this world
all the
loveliness it can.
-Mary Oliver

“i’m a great believer in poetry out of the classroom, in public places,

i’d rather have my poems on the subway than around the seminar table at an mfa program.”
