I am going to be editing the Keep This Bag Away From Children site for all of June. Then, in July, I am going to disappear into the mountains for a bit...
Anyway, I am kicking off the month with three wonderful poems from Liat Mayer. I pasted a sample below, but you can read them all here.
More of Liat's poetry can be found in the forthcoming Bloomsbury Anthology of Contemporary Jewish American Poetry.
Striking happiness. The stars
after midnight mid winter
saving everything. Stumbling
through ordinary brokenness
planes so low overhead
sometimes the earth is trembling.
Days where nothing matters
and then finally
days where nothing matters,
the clouds extending perfectly.
