What I’m Reading: Claire Falls in Love the Day they Prove the God Particle by Margaret Bashaar

The “Five Poems in Five Days” thing has been going around Facebook, so all my lovely poet friends are posting lovely poetry. Today I’m loving this gem that appeared in Stirring’s Volume 15, Edition 5 issue.

Day they proved the God Particle I saw
the small spot I was, how I walk this town,
same pattern the universe expands from,
too old to see everything a sign.

Ms. Bashaar is the Editor-in-Chief of Hyacinth Girl Press, and this poem can also be found in her recently-released book, Stationed Near the Gateway, from Sundress Publications.
