Girl Poet III by William C. Burns, Jr.
published in Volume 3, Issue 2 on February 29th, 1996

      She often found poetry
         in the trash
      In the curve of the sky
      The muddy waters
         twisting through the grassland
            beyond the fence

      She could find poetry
         watching an old man eat
      Huddled under the covers
         in a blizzard
      Listening to Johnny Rivers
