Book Ablaze in Sunlight
on the Kitchen Table

Mark Jackley

Who knows,

if I place my hand upon it


may read me,

skimming through

the chapters

to the silence

of a flyleaf,

secretive as moss,

white as an

April garden


wordlessly, under

one last snow.



Mark Jackley lives in northwestern Virginia. Last year, Main Street Rag released his book of poems Many Suns Will Rise. His poems have appeared in Fifth Wednesday, Natural Bridge, and other journals.
