Why this?

The occasional poem of my own and a generous helping of work by others that I find inspiring. Site is named for a beloved book by one of my favorite writers, Italo Calvino, whose fanciful work lights--and delights--my soul.

The Last to Blow [a day back from Iceland; a work in progress]

Iceland

There is no war
anymore. Just
spent rock and
sea and, somehow,
a lone tern colony
on what was
Grímsey. Also
a single goal
post in once-Höfn,
long gone to
rust and lichen.
A bird coasts
overhead while
beneath, the seed
of an argument
rattles, quickens.
