Moody Maggies make for murky poetry, and WordPress is a worthy study break. Enjoy!

Call, Lovely Linger, Call
By Maggie McGinity

Calm the escape I once found here.
Leaven the rise of falls and fears.
Imagine a simple, succinct grounding,
Not this manic mass I’m founding,
Gulls around, surrounding.

Look! Something shiny on the hook
If we swoop down
Turn it over
Take a look and see what
Lesson(s) can be made
Epiphanies of beaded braid

Let us, this lone shine, take it.
If we should chance to break it,
All will still be fine and dandy,
Roving roads still here and handy.

Calligraphy and the one, two, three.
Long live amor’s anarchy.
Imagine a world where this doesn’t matter,
Never a clang, never a clatter,
Going on and on. Awake to shatter.”


“Time was passing like a hand waving from a train I wanted to be on.
I hope you never have to think about anything as much as I think about you.”
-Jonathan Safran Foer

“The greatest thing in the world is to know how to belong to oneself.”
-“The Complete Essays,” by Michel de Montaigne
