Poetry roundup

February 28th, 2013

Here’s just a sample of what I’ve been reading on the net lately. Some of it’s recent, and some of it is from a few years back, but recently discovered by me.

At Plume, “Deceiving the Gods” by Ellen Bass.

At the always wonderful Linebreak, “Because” by Michelle Bitting.

Up this week at Heron Tree, “To a Hymn Book” by Jeff Hardin.

From the current issue of Pebble Lake Review, “Saliferous” by Hala Alyan.

The Tunnel” by Natasha Saje is from a 2003 issue of VQR, but I just discovered it this week and am glad I did. I might like her “Agoraphobia” from 2004 even better…

Also from VQR (fall of 2012), “What Is The Wholesale Price of The Traveler’s Vade Mecum?” by Sandra Beasley.

And from a 2010 issue of Rattle, “On Loved Ones Telling the Dying to ‘Let Go’” by Reeves Keyworth.

Enjoy! What are you reading these days?
