A Poem by Christina Murphy

 
Crossing
 
red blaze of oak on a back road leading to visible fields where no house is
 
the mustard seed is a window into all that remains unseen on crooked paths overgrown with weeds and twisted roots
 
the glass eye seeing darkly shall know as it is known and weep in solitude along the crossing that never ends
 
tribulation is to grace as tides in the ocean opening to rain; deliverance is a maze of cold with snowflakes descending
 
that cover the surface, obscure its beauty, and leave the traveler in one dimension--calling out, calling out
 
always the call, lost in the frozen air, alone, adrift, as the seas in equatorial /ethereal splendor
 
as all other dimensions converge and disappear
 
 
 
 
Christina Murphy lives and writes in a 100 year-old Arts and Crafts style house along the Ohio River. Her poetry is an exploration of consciousness as subjective experience, and her most recent work appears in PANK, La Fovea, StepAway Magazine, Pear Noir! and Humanimalz. The poets she most admires are Gertrude Stein, T.S. Eliot, and Jane Hirshfield for their undaunted (and impeccable) sense of the interrelationship of language, imagery, and consciousness. Her work has twice been nominated for a Pushcart Prize and for the 2012 Best of the Net Anthology.

  1. But if you want to|if you wish to} use extra unique supplies such as nylon or carbon fiber, you’ll want a printer that can get much hotter than the 240-degree cap we see on in style fashions just like the Creality Ender Duck Down Duvet Inserts three Pro. We have been capable of to} print string-free TPU fashions and it dealt with PETG as easily as PLA. Our only problem with this printer was having to manually create a profile in Cura as it was not included. However, should you only have room for one printer in your workshop, that is the one. Selling for a retail price of $599.ninety nine the Phrozen Sonic Mini 8K is focused towards of|in direction of} miniature makers and jewellery designers who are able to degree up their prints. For novices in search of a high-resolution machine at a lower price, the Phrozen Sonic Mini 4K provides .035mm XY with the same velocity and precision for $349.00.
