Baby,

Mark Jackley‘s most recent book of poems is On the Edge of a Very Small Town. His work has appeared in Sugar House Review, Fifth Wednesday, Talking River, Timberline Review, and other journals. He lives in Purcellville, VA.


Baby,

all I wanted was to snuggle
on the couch
like John and Yoko,
like potato bugs,
embryonically
curled up
in a dream of
something like
ourselves become
ourselves,
like the poems we are,
wadded in
God’s pocket.
