The Friday poem: “So”, by Sam Hunt


New verse by Kaipara poet Sam Hunt.




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





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