“We Never Were” by C.R. Resetarits

We never were
this postcard couple
matching strides 
mountainous dreams.

We never were
but hints and steam
a captured longing
on passing trains.

Tribute to Postcard Poems


C.R. Resetarits: “I like edges. I like the edges of things coming up against the edges of other things. This is what I like best about collage art, and it is what I like best about poetry coupled with images: all that edgy minglement. I like small vignettes: in composition, pattern, palette, visual rhythm, so postcard poems made for my postcard collages seems natural for me.”
