Mary Oliver Mash-Up Travel Poems
Searching for a suitcase –
And here you may find me (“Tides”)
Checking the baggage specs
In the luggage section.
One or two things are all you need. (“One or Two Things”)
Good thing – twenty-inch carry-on
and a backpack will have to do.
I’m traveling lightly this trip!
-Kim Johnson, using borrowed lines from the poetry of Mary Oliver, as noted
