Base Senses

Base Senses_a

texture undesirable
far removed from
our senses
desired only as
meaningless below
and shadowed by
overhead arch
stone, steel
reaching from




spanning those
base senses
and their textures
to achieve an ideal

Base Senses


This is my response to Jane Dougherty’s Poetry Challenge #13: Bridges
