Elegy/Elk River


Award & Honors

Winner of the 2015 Floating Bridge Press Chapbook Award, “Elegy/Elk River” is a moving, fractured narrative told through multiple perspectives. These lyrical poems spiral through time around one common loss, ultimately asking the reader to examine childhood, memory, and what we think we know of shared experiences.

Sample Poems:

a hummingbird // with strangle marks / most call // ruby-throated

  • BoilGulf Stream

I know things

and although she bled, she thanks him for it

Leaves discolor / because of what // trees are asked / to hold overnight
