"This work is unlike any other, in its range of rich, conjuring imagery and its dexterity, its smart voice. Carroll-Hackett doesn’t spare us—but doesn’t save us—she draws a blueprint of power and class with her unflinching pivot: matter-of-fact and tender." —Jan Beatty

Happy National Poetry Month! Beginning by Lia Purpura

BEGINNING

In the beginning,
in the list of begats,
one begat
got forgot:
work begets work
(one poem
bears
the next).
In other words,
once there was air,
a bird
could be got.
Not taken.
Not kept.
But conjured up.

Sometimes the Prompt Is Good Company

Daily Prompt

The pups and I had all kinds of feathered company on our walk this morning. Put me in mind of one of my mama’s favorite poets, John Greenleaf Whittier:

from “What the Birds Said”
“The birds against the April wind
   Flew northward, singing as they flew;
They sang, “The land we leave behind
   Has swords for corn-blades, blood for dew.”
Make art about birds, about flying, about flight, about what the birds said.
