A zipper that jammed halfway
Walking through the Old City of Jerusalem
In its tumults, I heave and roll like a ship
The drumming of winter rain
Caught between the past and the present,
To get it, sometimes you have to let it go
My name is Caitlyn Chandler and I live in the small but rapidly growing town of Waxhaw in Charlotte, NC. It’s a nice town; just far enough away from the city to gain a sense of freedom but not lost, miles into the country, to feel like you live in the middle of nowhere. I am a design student at the community college, an artist who mainly specializes in graphite portraits, and I have been pursuing poetry for about three years now.

Nothing Has Changed
Lazy eyes drift across
A rusty bird feeder
