Emily, XL

She sweeps with many-colored brooms

Dirt-dry sky anchored by plank walls

bare brown arms kilted skirts

She leaves the riverside window open

sun-damp dreams lured and snared

in yards upon yards of muslin curtains


Inspired by Poets Online’s monthly prompt: Begin with a line of an Emily Dickinson poem.

One thought on “Emily, XL”

I'd be so happy to hear from you.
