To carry on our love of all things poetry and to keep the energy high, I will continue to post poems by the contributing poets to the anthology until the Colorado Book Awards on May 21, 2017 (info by clicking here).

Today’s poem is by contributing poet: Kari Redmond

 

Your Sock

I found it,
Two years later
You had moved
My turn now

The washer and dryer
loaded on the truck
The last thing to go

One final look
before leaving
There it was, your sock

Lonely and spider web covered
I picked it up,
loose between two fingers

Two years and a day ago
Perhaps it was on your foot
Inside your shoe

I bet you have new shoes now
And socks
I do not know you anymore

What remains of us?
But an abandoned sock
You didn’t know you were missing.
