We’re happy to share that Laura Marris (Poetry ’13) has published a slew of poems recently! “Moon Man” and “Prognosis” appear with audio recordings in The Cortland Review, and “Threshold” and “Choose Your Own Adventure” are in Prelude.
Laura has also published a thought-provoking piece on Adam Kirsch’s book Emblems of the Passing World in The Common.
Some stirring lines from “Threshold”:
What’s the name of the shape you see
when you close your eyes after looking at a light?
A flower, a terror, a child in the woods confusing yaddo, shadow,
searching for a great-horned owl.
