You Can Notice

You can notice old feelings on paper
by the dust cradled in the bowls of vowels
and in the gaps between letters,
or worse, words,
but you have to look closely
and some feelings
don't like to be looked at.


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.
