Sample poem:

----

#100

There is field, and we are in it.
This is it, you say
crouching low over your shoes.


We prepared to leave as
milk bottles came
chose instead the ones
the tide brings - green


buckets on ropes
     hanging low
from our shoulders. We
find the cows out
in the field. A drunken farmer
too busy making
snow angels. We milk instead


then walk the twelve
     miles to the beach
avoiding slot machines
until our beds are checked.


On the edge of the pier
     we can begin again
to see ourselves. We dip
chipped mugs deep in buckets
     for our bones.
