EDITOR’S CHOICE: A Woodpecker on the Grass

EDITOR’S CHOICE AWARD: bringing our favorite previously-published poems back to the front page.

Submitted by Shaun Clamp

A woodpecker on the grass
needling for worms
Shooting through the damp
green sea; its wing a mussel shell
blotched with barnacles
Its glistening spear
unrefracted
