These two poems by Megan Glionna are connected through the idea of longing, where and how it originates and where it goes…

A Wide Openness I was as parched as the plants looked Brittle like the dusty ground Thirsty for any drop A glance A morsel Affection my drug of choice The landscape A wide openness A mirror of my desire The foreign taste Acidic and adventurous I felt lucky to take you on
Haunted Do you see my body As it ages From above… Do you watch me? Or only when I conjure you? I think of you When it feels good The unforgettable slope The curve The dip I hope I licked it
