Shannon Eddy


Or among the flush
The trickle cultivates

Until no habit
Is left uninterested

Wince. Realign.
Unknown headwaters

Creek crawling, branches
Off in capillaries

As saplings often do.

Act (or) react?
No man is furniture

Momentum only arrives
As dams ebb, on stilts,

As dried earth’s jowl
Rills riverbeds upwards

Out of once
Stagnant streams.

Shannon Eddy graduated from the University of Rhode Island with a BA in English in 2009. Before and since graduation he has worked with the Ocean State Summer Writer’s Conference.
