“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.
