The bushes are pretty much picked clean by now, but that doesn't mean we can't still savor, at least in our imaginations, a fresh blackberry. Click on this link to read and listen to Galway Kinnell's poem Blackberry Eating.
Like Anne Sexton, the business of words often keeps me awake. My favorite tulip? Queen of the Night. My books include The Little Office of the Immaculate Conception & Reckless Lovely. I also wrote a book of 366 writing prompts, one for every day of the year, with Kelli Russell Agodon: The Daily Poet. I edit Crab Creek Review and teach at Bellevue College.
