Weekly Features!


Starting this week there will be weekly features of published works from the Laurel Review. This week's feature is from vol. 47 issue 2 called "Circles" by Michelle Y. Burke.

Circles

Night. It's snowed all day. Cornfields and trees
collect what the wind lifts. On a train,
a man and woman face each other.

They don't speak; they look past each other.
She watches the moon whiten. He watches trees
thin to darkness. She remembers another train

marked by a silence like snow, a northbound train
that carried their argument like another
toy lost to childhood. He remembers trees,

toy trees and little trains, one passing the other.
