Surface Tension Tom Montag Poetry

local_library Surface Tension

by Tom Montag

Published in Issue No. 221 ~ October, 2015

they call it

speaking of


water. We

have blue sky.


We have dark

soil warming,


here at the

edge of spring.


Surface tension,

they call it,


where we’re

on, not in.
