Poetry roundup

December 20th, 2012

At Poetry Daily, “Last Day on Earth” by Lawrence Raab.

In Union Station Magazine, “Taken for Granted” by Marie-Elizabeth Mali.

From The Missouri Review, “What Was Missing” by Margaree Little.

That poem put me in mind of Eduardo Corral’s “Border Triptych” which can be found in his collection Slow Lightning (get it! read it!) and also here (from the summer of 2005).

And in the about poetry category, Sandra Beasley has an interesting post on her blog about point of view in poetry. This is something I’ve been thinking about a lot in this manuscript and I’ve switched back and forth between points of view and forms of address more than once. But this line from her post might finally have gotten me to look at it in the way I need to:

But I think point of view is undervalued as a determinant of tension. The POV you choose helps shape the risks your poem can take.

Go read the whole post, it’ll give you a lot to think about.

    Yeah for Eduardo! I hope you and your family have happy holidays! Our little family in Finland decided yesterday that my husband will be accepting a new job state-side. We’re packing up 6 months earlier than planned. Part of me is very excited, but part of me is very sad to leave this cold, dark (especially today!) northern country and life I have grown to love. I look forward to continuing to read of your expat and family stories, but from a continent away.
