‘3 Poems’ by Stephanie Bradbury



Every four years
I’m faithfully unfaithful.
I won’t give up giving up.

When February forgets
to leave and steps cold feet
into the sun,

I dig through our artifacts,
declare them all

Every four years
I leap.

Long Distance

world clock
returns the time
it bought,
damaged and in
a different box-
a parting gift
that thought
it was the prize.


a pill to wake,
a pill to sleep,
a pill to correct
each side effect…

Stephanie Bradbury lives in north Georgia and works as an emergency room nurse. Her poetry and short stories have appeared in numerous journals and literary magazines, including Ink in Thirds, The Rusty Nail, Mad Swirl, and Third Wednesday.
