Craig Finlay


Four Winds Field

Take the burnt man collecting
cigarette ends along Michigan.
I find elegance in simple routine.
He found a mostly unsmoked
Camel. And put it in a Ziploc.
A collection, like logs jammed
against a bridge in a flood.

CRAIG FINLAY lives in South Bend, Indiana, where he spends most of his time being a librarian. His poems have appeared, or are upcoming​,​ in The Beloit Poetry Journal, After the Pause, The Blue Mountain Review and Five: 2 One, among others.
