Poems by Stefan Lorenzutti


Poems about quests. Quiet quests. Fairly unadventurous ones, as quests go. But maybe there are some mini-momentous moments here all the same: in eating a smushed muffin on a windswept mountaintop; or making a big decision (to drop out of college) while methodically reorganizing a rucksack; or failing to find a swimming hole and settling instead for a bath in the dark.

Tialys and Salmakia in the White Mountains

Dragonfly squad
scuds for midges

on the surface of Kinsman’s
trembling pond at predawn.

Drinking at water’s edge
then stiffening between laps

my diorama dog detects
Gallivespian spies saddled

to dragonfly

I cup some astral flotsam
& splash my face awake.
