the clouds hinted of old bedsheets
left on too long
and then the fog fell clammy
in a downing with the sun
and we were so cold
the wet seemed like wind
and the turns in the road
like twists in a tortured gut
until the steam rose with bravado
from the lonely sugar shack.

Tricia Knoll is delighted that “April” is going to be hanging in the Randolph Village Laundromat in Randolph, Vermont as part of the town’s Poem City celebration of National Poetry Month. (Randolph, Vermont: population 2,300). Also, this month her new chapbook Checkered Mates is on pre-sale through April 15 at Kelsay Books and then at regular price through Kelsay Books and Amazon.
