FNS: The World Accordion to Me by Stephanie Malley

Every Friday night we feature a short story, essay, personal narrative, poem,
spoken word, or short film for your enjoyment.

Tonight’s poem is from Stephanie Malley

In an anonymous time,
in a nowhere place,
I stipple the flat surface of the earth
with polka dots.

Ecru, olive, umber, ebon
feet rise up, join hands, dance
across abandoned touch screens
into a third dimension.

Here, now, I face the world:
now, here, while the notes swirl
round and round and round.

Stephanie Malley is stay-at-home mother of four daughters who enjoys writing poetry for both children and adults. She submitted this poem as part of our Visual Quarterly Prompt Contest.
