Poetry of Kansas Here & Now, There & Then

never        will he return to Kansas
he prefers      sea foam on sand
never          and two decades later
his wife offers him sea stars
to forget
he excavates limestone & shale
plants gardens of rose & peony
unearths molluks
trapped in stone
his prairie                 was once sea

– Gabriela Lemmons
