To what purpose, April, do you return again? Beauty is not enough. You can no longer quiet me with the redness Of little leaves opening stickily. I know what I know. The sun is hot on my neck as I observe The spikes of the crocus. The smell of the earth is good. It is…
10 Years of Poets off Poetry & AWP Tampa
I’m late posting this news here but after 10 years I’ve decided to put my series Poets off Poetry/Song of the Week on an indefinite hiatus. I wrote something to try to commemorate the moment. You can read it here. 10 years is a long time to do something and toward the end of 2017 the…
