Weekly Write: “From the Book of Tobin” by Maggie Hess

From the Book of Tobin

Not many know the comfort of a yellow lab,
though your soft ears are dust
passing over a waterfall,
I hold on.

Inspired by her transformational battle with schizoaffective disorder, Maggie Hess’s poetry has been widely read. Maggie won the Leidig Poetry Award judged by Linda Pastan and the May B Smith writing award.
