                                                    Meg Smith

                    Meg Smith is a writer, journalist, dancer and
                    events producer living in Lowell, Mass. USA.
                    She is the author of five poetry books. Her
                    first short fiction collection, The Plague
                    Confessor is due out in fall 2020.

                              Leaves in their poverty
                              retreat to their self-made nests.
                              A rabbit may stir in its frozen hill,
                              but give nothing so dear as
                              the promise of spring.
                              In all, the snow, the sighs,
                              the falling of synapse, I give.
                              But I must take in some dream
                              to keep this last spark,
                              before unburdening the remains of warmth,
                              or lying awake, with knowing.
