Slow Motion Undergrad

She sloshed her hips
back and forth like a sailboat
crashing on the waves of grass,
careful to keep her feet on the ground
just long enough
to save her balance.


This poem was selected for the 2012 Poetry in Public project, sponsored by the Iowa City Public Art Program. Poetry in Public displays poems by local writers of all ages in Iowa City buses, downtown kiosks, and select public buildings from April (National Poetry Month) through the fall.
