There is beautiful disorder
In the way you navigate a stage
A calculated madness
In your action
A giving over and complete
To whatever moves your spirit.

Your body an artist’s brush
Or camera’s flash
Brief as sighs
Light as butterfly wings
Resting on that moment
Then moving on.



Anne Mikusinski has always been in love with words. She’s been writing poems and short stories since she was seven. Her influences range from Robert Frost and Dylan Thomas to David Byrne and Nick Cave. She hopes that one day, some of her writing will impress others the way these writers have had an impact on her.
