The Poet (Blood From a Turnip)

The tip of the felt,

to capture a feeling in passing,

is bound to a page

in pursuit of its bind.

 

Here, the willows once plucked

are given new life

as their roots take root

in a silent soil,

One

that puts their toil

to labor of a different kind.

One

where the mind

which drives the hand

spills blood into the field

that gave it turnips

and consumes the very thing

which gave its stomach

song.

-Amy Struthers
