Poet’s Corner


Maker of Little Things
By Zachary Wiesner

Maker of little things.
Happy with little things.

Small faces,
Pinched out of paper.

Found stones in
Linear arrangement.

Shells with barnacles
That mimic a city.

String figures
Practiced at night.

Never discussed,
Never famous.

Only a glance,
A shared smile,

Now and again.

Zachary Wiesner lives in West Tisbury.
