...occasional postcards from Washington, D.C. writer Sandra Beasley...
This is stunning. Absolutely stunning. I adore the image of the parking lot!
I love this poem. I especially like the end, with "caressing the empty spaces." It's tough to write a poem this short and make it work so well.
This is lovely Sandra. Love the imagery and the caress.
It's great to see you poem-ing, Sandra. This is wonderful.
Ah, thanks everyone! (This was in regards to a draft called "Love Poem.") The encouragement makes this pace a lot easier.
Wow. Wow.The sheep, hustling across Wyoming shoulder to shoulder,became one great blanket fevering the MidwestTriple Wow.
I really love this prophecy one! how was li??
Thanks! (These comments were in regards to a draft called "Plenty.") Carly, Long Island was a trip--a looong trip, and a good trip. More soon.Radish King, I confess: I'm always looking for honorable excuses for more sheep in my poems.
Hermit Crab -- love that opening.
Wow to the "castle fucked a fist"!
Hooray to the two kinds poem!
Hey, thanks for the Alison Titus poem. It's stunning. Now I have to go look her up. Good luck on Sunday - family obligations prevent me from being there, but I'll catch up to one of them. Nice looking book.
Yay! I was totally addicted to Choose Your Own Adventure books when I was younger. I like this interpretation... FUN!
I enjoyed your poems over at AGNI online? Here's the link for other folks: http://www.bu.edu/agni/authors/S/Sandra-Beasley.html
Oh, wow--thanks for the heads up on those AGNI poems! They were accepted way back when, then held up when the BU folks redesigned the website.
Heartbreaking ending with the turtle.
Sandra:I have always loved the Isis/Osiris myth,and this is just an amazing poem which weaves in and out of the myth with elegance and ease. I know I am coming late to the party, but this is just incredible!
The imagery in this piece is strong. Great ending. Thanks for posting it.
Nice poem. I was looking for the other one, Oxidation(?); I was going to come back and read it again; now its gone.
Wonderful! I love that "hallelujah of croutons."
Thanks, everyone--it's the home stretch and I can use the encouragement!"mynamehere"--I keep the drafts rotating out frequently, so I can revise them in my own time and have them to submit to journals. So hopefully "Oxidation" will resurface sooner or later on the written page. = )
You elegantly weave together so many different threads here. Very nice.
I love your origami poem. I have written my own, but I think your oblique use of the subject matter is very compelling, and quite wonderful.A fine poem.
Thanks for your comments at my blog, Sandra. I really liked your recent poem with the line "tea cured? This is raw..." etc. A wonderful and precise poem about relationships.
You made it! Congrats on a month of very creative poem-ing... and thanks for your comments and encouragement at my blog.
Capybaras rock! Way to go out on a high! Next year: zombie capybaras of the stratosphere!
