poetry moment

Following a path from a discussion on scalzi's Whatever through the biography of writer/DJ Steve Boyett, I find myself composing a wikipedia page for poet Carrie Etter, of whose work Boyett published a chapbook in 1992. I dare say her writing has gotten much better since then, and I would bring your attention to her two prose poems in Shearsman magazine.

I also like this one from Shadowtrain:


Under the till lies a receipt long missed. It is hard keeping track of expenses. There was the wine and there were the words. There was pain in your grimace. One day soon I will go to the pawnshop, turn all my trinkets into spare change.

I shall have to remember to share these with novapsyche when she gets back...
