Only because

it’s the longest day

I write a poem, uninspired

by the long drought, the cracked earth,

the drooping hydrangeas, the parade

of black ants I’ve never seen before . . .

–excerpt from “Only because” in A Light Dusting of Breath by Donna  Pucciani (Purple Flag Press, 2014). First published in Acumen.
