Poets Speaking To Poets

This poem, which first appeared in my chapbook “Irresistible”, is the first of two selected for the anthology  “Poets Speaking To Poets: Echoes and Tributes” – the brainchild of editors Robert Hamblin and Nicholas Fargnoli. My poem was written after Cecilia Woloch’s “Blazon”. I will post my tribute poem later. The book is a wonderful collection of poems that talk to each other through poets past and present. It’s available on Amazon here and also here.

      1. When I first read this one in Irresistible a few years ago, I remember thinking *how lovely, this claim such physical affinity, such proximity of soul existing*…

        I didn’t yet know what I didn’t know…

        Who knew that I’d ever know what I definitely now do know–
        and appreciate your account of here all the more for my own knowing?

      2. Thank you, Stephanie – I’m so very glad you’re in the know now! And I love that this poem can be appreciated through different lenses of time and experience by the same person, which you’ve so wonderfully and koan-like articulated here. xox
