“The Hollywood Glacier” by Maria Nazos was selected for second place in the 2021 Love & Eros Prize by guest judge Kaveh Akbar. We’re honored to share this beautiful poem.
“I love the journey this poet takes me on, the fullness of its vision. Granular to cosmic, miraculous magical thinking to an egg balancing on a single nail. The poem feels subtly but densely peopled, too. It’s its own ecosystem, this love.” —Kaveh Akbar
