y * madrone

New catalog available from Tupelo Press, information about the Colrain Manuscript Conference, two more days to submit to the Dorset Prize, and a new poem by y madrone of Columbia College Chicago: “Tulip is the bravest flower, I mean bird.” 

I love this poem’s sparse, elliptical imagery.  With an eloquent economy of words… tulips are birds, are pigeons, are ubiquitous… are tulips.  

Favorite lines:  “And so are we, sort of.  Tulips: / most prolific worldwide.”
          — y madrone


A short biography:  y madrone currently lives in Chicago, IL via Olympia, Washington via Baku, Ahzerbaijan.
