Lopsided Moon by Johnlmalone

From the Drabble’s feed. A beautiful poem that I wanted to share with everyone. By Johnlmalone The bus shelter at the end of our street grinds its teeth at night. Sometimes I sit with it, hold its hand, listen to its tale of drunks and suicides, of lycanthropes baying at the full moon, of lostContinue reading “Lopsided Moon by Johnlmalone”

Meagan Reads Poetry: Past Life Invisible by Daniel Haskin

It took me some time to get through this and finally get around to reviewing it, not because it’s a slog to get through (far from it), but rather just due to my hectic schedule. I would like to summarize my overall thoughts about this collection with the statement that it is a reader friendlyContinue reading “Meagan Reads Poetry: Past Life Invisible by Daniel Haskin”

Sharing from The Drabble

“Bridges mean nothing to those with wings…” love that line! By D.F. Parizeau In the silence between hurricanes, expired passports and paper planes, I’ve spent too many days contemplating my retreat; bridges mean nothing to those with wings. The pain of leaving sits crimson in my chest. Must I fall before first flight? Skin rawContinue reading “Sharing from The Drabble”

For the Floo Girls

The following poem was originally featured at my other writing blog here. My friends and I did a poetry writing challenge in which we wrote pieces inspired by music from Florence and the Machine, and created Floetry. This piece has a particular structure on the page that I cannot replicate through WordPress because HTML isContinue reading “For the Floo Girls”

Weft & Weave

The following is a poem I wrote for Rattle’s Ekphrastic Challenge back in February. Here’s a link to the original page and image that inspired this work: This is just a single piece. A fragment of imagination as a childish version remembers it. Patchwork puzzle piece across America where all highways and blue skies withContinue reading “Weft & Weave”

No, Thank You. Not Today, Sir

I went to a poetry workshop a couple of months ago for cabaret poetry. It was a new and fun experience. Here’s the work that resulted from that workshop with pictures of me reading. You saw me sitting from across the bar through the smoky curtain of your Cuban cigar. “Mami, pero you’re too prettyContinue reading “No, Thank You. Not Today, Sir”
