“Listen” Published in Spring Street 2009 Issue

One of my poems, “Listen”, was published in the 2009 issue of Spring Street.

“Listen” is an excerpt from a longer work, “Tales of the Night”, which I plan to eventually record as a spoken-word album with music.

I’ll give you a one-stanza sample from the poem:

“listen
one voice rises above the ghosts of pueblos
an older woman, grandmother of the tribe
sprinkles dust into the quiet fire before her
she calls up souls
to dance in the fire
out of the fire
behind her
against the sky”

About Spring Street: Spring Street is Columbus State Community College’s literary magazine and is published once a year. Spring Street is available in print form from the Columbus State Community College bookstore

    I love the imagery of this stanza. The simple word ‘listen’ made me physically stop to listen, turn the voices off in my head and wait in expectation to hear something important, at least important enough to get my attention.
