I have two new poems up at Town Creek Poetry Journal, at http://www.towncreekpoetry.com.

Maybe you'll tell me what you think?

These 2 pieces are gorgeous.  "Carrying the sky" is an image I'll carry with me.

very Wallace Stevens to me

And I mean that in a good way.  "Leaving" get at the zeitgeist doesn't it--and the last line, very daring and yet it works.  Reminds me James Wright's famous hammock poem with the final line about wasting your life.  congrats

Matthew, you made my day!

 I rarely try leaps like that, but the poem insisted. I'm glad it worked, and very glad you took the time to tell me. Thanks!

Thanks, Belle!

 I'm so pleased you liked them. I wrote "Leaving" after our last eclipse. The woman with the blonde dog is my real- life neighbor. I like to put those real toads in my imaginary gardens. Not that my friend is a toad, of course!
