“Along for the Ride,” by Margaret Ray (Poetry ’20)

2020 poetry alum Margaret Ray was recently featured in the LEON Literary Review. Read an excerpt of “Along for the Ride” below:

Along for the Ride

Sweet Fears  don’t worry
the windshield wipers work  see
those flakes in the air
don’t worry  they’re going
somewhere melted  melting
and our view will be clear 
Look at this exit before us
we don’t have to stay
on this grief highway forever
look turn just slightly
and we can pull over for snacks…
