Salinity

M.A. Scott

Both of us gray enough to pass for blue,
the great heron and I, in the tall cordgrass
inspecting the silt for silver to sustain us.

I want to stilt with her through the mud
and glasswort, tidal and flat, our salt circling
the cracks in the cries we use to code infinity.


M.A. Scott is a musician, collage artist, paralegal and poet. Her work has recently appeared in the Nancy Drew Anthology published by Silver Birch Press, and Heron Tree's In the Public Domain series. She lives in Westchester, NY.

    I like the nature of this poem, that is, its expressed physical environment as well as its affinity and longing.

What do you think?
