Mike Brokos published in Cimarron Review and Poet Lore

brokos_photo_altWe’re happy to share Mike Brokos’ (poetry 2012) recent publications!   Mike has published two poems in the current issue of Cimarron Review (Winter 2015, “Indigenous” and “November View”) and another in the current issue of Poet Lore (Spring/Summer 2015,“The Leash”).





Here are some excerpts from his work:

from “The Leash”:
I’d feel my body start to sink with yours

into a silent intuition, since it was too dark
for anything but whispering, too dark
to navigate the cliff of clay that broke the trail

by anything but memory…

from “November View”:
But for the two or three months that the vision
dimmed for the two of you, communing
across such distance; and when your parents
decided on their own list of your would-be wives;
and when you withdrew from everyone—
in the midst of that eclipse, what dawned on you…

Congratulations, Mike!
