MacQueen’s Quinterly: Knock-your-socks-off Art and Literature
Issue 12: March 2022
Micro-Poem: 34 words
By Scott Ferry

split dippers

 
in the icy morning we trace 
the myth of connection 

for our children make a map 
of god’s tensile threads 

just by sliding our finger 
across airless dark 

from distant light 
to distant 

light
