This selection, chosen by Guest Curator Callista Buchen, is from Holding my Selves Together by Margaret Rozga, released by Cornerstone Press in 2021.
Scatter seeds freely
on newly-awakened soil.
Some won’t take root. Some will
feed nuthatches and sparrows.
Some will be pulled, mistaken for weeds,
some arrested in a sudden late freeze
or washed away by flood
or starved in drought:
always some chance slip or stop.
All you need is enough green
through the mud of spring
to feel as if
you won’t go into the cold
without anything at all.
