The Arkansas International, #8

The Spring 2020 issue of the Arkansas International will be online for a month. It includes some beautiful work, including translations of Iranian poet Garous Abdolmalekian by Ahmad Nadalizadeh and Idra Novey from the forthcoming collection Lean Against This Late Hour (Penguin Poets, this month). It also has two of my poems in it–the first two to be published of what is turning out to be a series called “Thousand-Year-Old Words”–words that have existed in English for at least that long. Poems in this series include “Love” (forthcoming next year in Poetry Northwest), “Shimmer,” “Spell,” and “Home.” Here you can read “Strand” and “Loss.” And here’s a link to the whole issue.
