A Poem by Kay Ryan -

I am grateful for poetry and our new poet laureate.

Hide and Seek


It’s hard not

to jump out

instead of

waiting to be

found. It’s

hard to be

alone so long

and then hear

someone come

around. It’s

like some form

of skin’s


in the air

that, rather,

than have torn,

you tear.


 - Kay Ryan
