2 Poems | Maggie Blake Bailey

As always, gorgeous work up at The Fem this morning. Two short, meaningful poems by Maggie Blake Bailey. Spend a little time with The Fem today.

THE FEM

Postpartum

A dead lizard floats in the pool while
a man climbs a palm tree, chainsaw
dangling from his waist.

A crane rises from a tidal bed,
not white but brown,
thick with the muck of coastal waters

The intact bodies of crabs offer up
white porcelain legs, dead and
splayed open like hand.
