Today's poem is by Catherine Graham
There is a Stir, Always
If I hold onto this body the snow will grow inside me
and the winter of my cells will flake
into tiny crystals like six-figured gods,
each arrow tip attempting to make the point of something
as tears flow.
There is a stir, always.
I rise to the cold
to take my place among the fragile stars,
