Summary

“Searching for Things to Worship”


Sorting through fluttering debris

of thick boyhood days, tangle of jungle

browned with our absence,

I remember how you cupped

water at Cedar Creek,

your hands a chalice. And flowers


you planted near the bank

to make it your church,

somewhere to sit in the greening

comfort of a private prayer.

A place one might see God

and not be surprised.


Winner of the Codhill Poetry Chapbook Prize for 2006, Patrick Carrington’s Thirst reads like a novena, a plea for understanding and mercy.” — Pauline Uchmanowicz, final judge

Patrick Carrington teaches creative writing in New Jersey and is the poetry editor for the art and literary journal Mannequin Envy. His poetry has appeared in The Connecticut Review, The Potomac Review, Rattle, The Evansville Review, and many other journals.
