Freckle by Nose

Freckle by Nose


A new freckle appears

As your face slowly unveils herself,

I let my guard down to loving you

This is who you are

Girl with freckle by nose

A fighter

Funny dancer



you say as they fly

overhead in clusters

of cold black

like the new-moon October

Topography to live by

Letting the land own us because

We love it

Just as the child owns her mother

And I let her because

I love her too

This new freckle-faith

Like veils of fog

Rolling off the hills—

Showing us home.
