New work – “Missed miracles”

April 13, 2009

I’m still working on “Tiger, tiger,” but this came today. I skipped the typical stage of sharing it with Jen (my collaborator, she’s been very helpful with my work), because it feels ready. I’m very happy with the rhyming of it; it came as I wrote it.But I am certainly open to editing it – it probably needs it.

Like most of my recent work, “Missed miracles” has come out  of a week of thought: in it is the Ferris wheel in Yucca Valley, a conversation with my mother about saints, feeling myself grow old, and (naturally) what Erica and I are facing. I’m afraid it’s too confessional. Also, I can’t seem to shake the prose form; it really is the only way I’ve seen poetry lately.
