Mimi White

March 19, 2022

Rye, NH 



I touch my collarbone 


where the necklace rested,


a strand of oblong orange beads.


The jeweler said that Steve knew what he wanted,


Something more interesting than beautiful.


I remember him clasping them in the back.


His hands felt light


Now they float


Cold on my skin

Mimi recently moved from her home of 50 years in Rye, NH to the river town of Exeter, NH where she has already fallen in love with the racing waters.  She hopes that new poems will take the rivers into account and how one starts another new beginning.  The working title of her latest chapbook-sized manuscript of “nonagons” is titled “Burnish.”  A nonagon is a 9 line poem and the name of a nine sided figure.
