Two poems by Constance Schultz • Empty Mirror

on the beach at steamboat rock thinking

too deep of the stars
& lake & columbia

flowing below all
her strength extra hot

today we forget
again the coldest

part of winter
forget when painting

for people who have
never been & all

the things loved
most are painted in

a search & find between
letters obvious between

escarpments between blue
blue blue skies w/red

sunsets & dry desert
grounds & storms thought

can be imagined
from miles away

in the lake

how old are
& do you

they will remember
us a spark when
we are swirled
up stars
