The Friday poem: “So”, by Sam Hunt

New verse by Kaipara poet Sam Hunt.

 

So

 

I don’t rightly know

it’s even you – but

 

being on the edge of what

was like a lake I know

 

which could only be seen

when there was no sun, no moon,

 

and that water so

deep you’d know

 

(if you’d half a brain)

not to go close.

 

But I had to,

to be on the edge of you

 

so.

 

 

Sam Hunt’s most recent book Salt River Songs was a best-seller throughout 2016.
