There Are Things I Love About Being Home
The sound of plates clinking
just before “dinner’s ready!”
if I’m not the one calling,
already in position
on the countertop, laughing
She is holding a glass of red loosely
The day slipping from her shoulders
A sweater hanging low around her elbows
with a tank top underneath.
Try this for me
does it need salt?
Katherine Welch is a senior studying international relations at SUNY Geneseo. She spends lots of time journaling little poems, and a dear friend of hers from home (Webster, NY) encouraged her to share some with Gandy Dancer. If you ask nicely, she will probably knit you a scarf.
