Carol Park

Strange Saint

Kateri lost all—

parents, sight, tribe to the pox

French brought—still she kept

blue sky of inner sight

and fierce love of God. She took

food to her blue people.

Carol Park roams cities and wilderness. Six years in Japan altered her. She teaches ESL and volunteers in a jail. Hiking, intimate chats, and reading sustain her. Her MFA comes from at Seattle Pacific University. Find her poems in Black Fox Literary, Broadkill Review, California Quarterly, Monterey Poetry Review, and several anthologies.
