“Ritual” by Caroline M. Mar

A new poem by alumna Caroline Mar (poetry, ’13) appears online at The Collagist:

Ritual

In the woods, the air is cool, damp.
I love the way the earth smells, decay
of old redwoods, soft hush
of some prehistoric morning. I remember

waking as a kid at camp after outside
overnights, those most exciting nights, how
my nose would itch with the dust
of the dirt beneath my sleeping bag.
