Two New Poems at Noble Gas Quarterly


Where do poems come from? It’s an endless mystery to me, although with these two I can at least point to specific events.

Both poems were inspired by¬†surprising, unplanned interactions with animals. In one, an owl who’d had her tree cut down hissed at me. In the other, a renegade, runaway goat showed up outside my home in Maine.

Noble Gas Quarterly, by the way, is a legit venture — not to be confused with my “ignoble gas” satire, which is totally illegit.
