Twitter has been good to me this week, and this week’s poems were brought to my attention by the lovely folks in my timeline. Here’s a sample:

Formerly Communist Love Sonnet” by Connie Deanovich at The Poetry Foundation, courtesy of @Don_Share and in honor of the word “malarkey.”

and “Gila” at Poets.org via @Drebelle.

As always, I love to hear what you’re reading.¬†Enjoy the weekend everybody!
