My Colby-Sawyer Experience

“My students are always kind of surprised to learn about what they have missed, what they haven't been paying attention to all their lives.”

Lemonade

Listing leftward, long in the lilting
lunch, lemons liberate themselves
from the limbs of lindens. More
and more mappings of mashed lemon
meander over the meadow, and now
nesting nuisances of osprey needle
the nobs of lemony splash. Oh for a sip
of ombre'd liquid half sweet or an orchard
of oms uttered by oncologists praying
and sweating in the sun. Please, pick the citrus
ovals peppering the plains. Proceed.
Don't question the quickening
pulses of spring.

-Alice Fogel
