Carry Weight | Sarah Boyd

I don’t want
—I think—
To be in that higher register,
Air-infused and lilting soft.

—I’d rather—
Of the ground,
Milled from grit and grumble.

Not a helium-high girl
But something a bit more
Rasp and rattle of words meant
—And heard.

Sarah Boyd is a freelance editor and writer who occasionally commits acts of poetry. She probably can’t be found @seviebee on Twitter, but it’s worth a shot.
