That Reckless Sound

7.50

by Colleen S. Harris-Keith

That Reckless Sound investigates the complications of identity and relationship, the destructive next to the beautiful, the fragile touching the reckless, all bound up into one fluid experience. These poems peer through the eyes of historical & mythic (female) figures from Pandora to Magdalene, Bathsheba to Joséphine. (Porkbelly Press, 2014)

EXCERPT OF “THE WAY YOUTH YIELDS”

There is nothing so faithless as
a girl left on her own among other
green and growing things. Brimming

with life, carelessly killing the field’s
flowering army so she can wear
ribbons of bluebells in her hair,

she has no need of forgiveness
