“After He Is Gone & Killed I Will Come To You” by Portia Elan

28 Feb

I have to share this lovely poem from Portia Elan up on iO Poetry called “After He Is Gone & Killed I Will Come To You.”  A sliver:

Repetition in this has a sweet, metaphysical musicality; it reminds me of this, echoing parts building and building out into bigger and bigger worlds.  This is a canticle, a full glass of dry wine, a crown of wedding braids in spring.

Read it all, enter this tent.
