Summary in Free Verse 2 – Ann Mikusinski

At evenings end
Different music
Feet shuffle
Quiet conversations
Shift in and out of gear
Another meeting
This time expected
Some words exchanged
A small gift given
And out into
The night air
Full of recent memories.

Anne Mikusinski has been writing poems since she was seven years old and probably making them up for long before that. Her influences range from Dylan Thomas and Sylvia Plath to David Byrne and Nick Cave. She hopes that someday her writing will be as much as an influence on someone as these writers have been for her.
