Poetry Friday: Pursuits by Heather Christle

It is not that you want
to be the one to make prints
in the untrampled snow
It is that you want
to be in the snow
without having touched it
to be of  the snow
not beginning
Everywhere commerce
dictates the shapes
that move you along
that seat you at the table
far from the snow
far from the act
of not touching
It only gets worse
A girl's gotta eat
And your hunger's
not even your own

- Pursuits by Heather Christle

Discovered in the October 2013 issue of Poetry magazine.
