March Corridor

The March edition of Corridor is out and about. Please keep your eyes out for it around town. It’s a little 5×7 10-page zine, sitting there, wanting to wish you a good day. One more zine to go and the project will end. Poetry Month 2022 to Poetry Month 2023.

“Moss” is a sample of a poem in the zine. Hope you enjoy it.


Stepping through the grove,
I see it all around me.
On the thatched roof of
a cottage, on rock and tree.

I stop and sit on my heels
to feel its delight.
Soft and palpably damp
from the dew overnight.

How comforting, this moss,
in a world that’s so prickly;
thistles and branches and
people terribly finicky.

So thank you, I say,
today to the moss,
for the calm and splendor
with which I’ve been embossed.
