“My mother believes / in the holiness of tides. Till today, she reminds me to have my food / well before an eclipse begins. She knows, the sun doesn’t care and the moon / pretends to.”
“This week your throat has refused to swallow / any of your favorites we tempt it with – / Black Bing cherries, Pemaquid oysters, minced papaya.”
We are so grateful to all of our partner-poets for sharing their work with us—please enjoy their beautiful words in our Featured Poetry catalogue.
