Nice Cage

Macri_NiceCage_zinnia.jpgFour poems — “Last of the beautiful,” “Wait and Say,” “Her face in the seahorse’s belly,” and “All Cranes Engage in Dancing” — pace behind the bars of the Fall 2018 issue of Nice Cage.














“Opus Interrasile,” the longest poem I’ve ever written, appears in the Hauntings issue of Ruminate. This piece is crown of sonnets, although to be honest, I didn’t know that was the name of the form at the time. Its title comes from a type of metalwork that creates holes to make a design. The poem is set in the St. Louis Art Museum, where I have wandered since I was a child. My last note about haunting closes the issue as well.
