Picnic

In honor of National Poetry Month, I thought I’d reprint one of my poems here. This little poem was first published in Encore: Prize Poems of the NFSPS 2013 published by the National Federation of State Poetry Societies. It’s one of those I popped off quickly and sent out on a whim — only to have it get picked up immediately. I hope you enjoy!

Picnic

The freckles
on your body
are like
the wildflowers
in this field;

I want to
                    connect
                                     each
                                                  dot

with my tongue –

I want to
see
if they
taste

like
          sprinkles
                              or
                                    pollen.
