poets at WCWPCCS 

WCWPCCS poets make my poetry meter hit FULL! On the back of this INCREDIBLE collaborative chapbook they write, "We all forgot who wrote what." WCWPCCS is Amy Berkowitz, Elisabeth Divis, Emma Gorenberg, Miriam Lawrence, Elisa McCool, and Jessica Young.

Here's a favorite of mine from the new collection EXQUISITE CRAPS. This is a poem I know that Magdalena Zurawski will LOVE as much as I do!


BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN, I WOULD LIKE TO RUN
THROUGH A CORNFIELD WITH YOU

But you're very famous now, and older, and I have a feeling you're being interviewed on NBC and wearing a baseball cap or something. And anyway, I'm in this cornfield with another man -- but Bruce, when he turns his back, I think of you without the baseball cap -- I think of you and I braid cornhusks into little crowns to adorn you with. Bruce, put down the microphone, leave the NBC studios, you owe Al Roker nothing, he will go on to tell the weather, and you will go on to tell me the answer to this question: where does the wild corn grow, Bruce? I mean the corn that nobody planted on purpose.
