Glassworks

Glassworks recently accepted a couple of my favorite poems which were having trouble finding a home.  “Chinese Parsley” and “The Best Week” will appear in Glassworks shortly.

 

Excerpt from “Chinese Parsley”:

I’ve heard it’s not necessary
to know a language
in order to translate from it

which makes me believe
maybe we’re not so bad
off after all

and what we’re doing
by loving

is taking each other
one word at a time
and looking it up

and allowing ourselves
to deviate from the actual,
literal thing
