Discussing My Poem 'Self Portrait' on CavanKerry's Poetry Nook
My Poem 'Self Portrait with Mabel, Rose, Lillianne, Fern, Mildred, Bea' from my upcoming collection See the Wolf is up on CavanKerry's Blog as part of the Poetry Nook series. I discuss a little about the impetus and inspiration for the poem. For instance, the fact that my grandmother Rose was the inspiration for the lines "names I wear like tarnished jewelry/ pinned to the inside/ of my bra for safekeeping." Three other poems from See the Wolf will be featured on Poetry Nook in the coming weeks.
