Delighted to have a new poem up at Via Negativa today — here’s “Talking Drum” — enjoy! Do take time to read the translations that inspired it — they’re linked at the beginning of the poem.

Also, honored to have two poems in the current issue of Expound; thank you editor Wale Owoade and the Expound editorial team.

And last but not least, Right Hand Pointing Issue 88 is out; thank you to all the contributors.

  1. awesome poetry as usual Laura specially liked the verse “into total speech, decoded by the body
    of each hearer, heads tilted to receive
    and suddenly we are stotting, feet
    inscribing jubilation in hot sands” such vivid imagery so poetic! love it
