Today's poem is by Bill Carty

The Desired Change Will Occur

I release a magenta tetragonal lattice kite
into the storm: soon only the black string remains.

In the snow, cattle kneel, rafters mewl.
No color, no playground. There are times it seems we

only know each other by a thread—
but we love that thread.
