Poem (writing website)

"Poem" on features a new audio and print poem each week. You can read the poem and listen to author read it. Click here to read this week's poem. Click here to browse an archive of past poems. There's some real gems in there, including a poem by one of my current favorite poets, Jeffrey Skinner. Click here to read Skinner's "The Long Marriage" and to hear him read the poem.

Skinner also has five poems in the current print issue of The Missouri Review (read my post on the online version of this literary magazine here). They are wonderful prose poems about his father. Skinner employs some images that are at once familiar and surprising. I enjoyed them so much they inspired me to write this poem. (Not nearly as good as his, but that's OK.)

Now get reading. And writing.
