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.”
