“We cannot talk about refugees and not / talk about war or water. About the breath / into and out of the mouth and how this is union.”
By Tobias Wray
“The stories we tell ourselves / leap and fall like fish into air, // back into the water—its quick / lip. Traffic happens by.”
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.
“wheeled in on a bed three times her size. / A bouquet of rotting meats, / organs, & calaveras ensconced / between her lips.”
