One Poem by Jordan Trethewey

Written in response to this month’s Special Challenge.


Let deer drink
while birds hide behind
a tumbling, liquid aviary.

This is where The Plan
deviates from geometrical

Nature doesn’t shout,
claim industriousness.

It’s conciliatory,
adapts to remain

pieces in a puzzle —
all in it
