The Poet Community

Pastiche | A Poem by JD DeHart

Here is your thumbtack,
now hang up the details
you wish others to see.
Collect the images, faded
photographs from what you
remember. Beware that
what you don’t remember
may be even more telling.
Close your eyes, begin
the story, see how you now
piece yourself together from
leaves, swirl, detritus,
fragments, images,
and now move with mess
and gracefulness.
