NEW! 2 poems by Naomi Tarle

Naomi Tarle

Two poems

LOVE SONG FOR SPACE, NUMBER 5

I am pig-hipped and knee-rich.
When I come up from the sea my ears crackle like snapdragons.


FIELD SONG FOR THE EARTH

song—this is earth

acquaintance me
with your wine mouth

grape seeds your grassy lips

jab your name between tooth and gum

move across your shoulder blade
          slime ice and wax cap
