Three New Poems by the Editor

After a trip to the Nelson-Atkins Museum in Kansas City last week, I was inspired to add three more ekphrastic poems to my collection:


"What Fate Saint Cate?" A conversation between angels after Francisco de Zurbaran's The Entombment of Saint Catherine of Alexandria











"Water Sillies" after Claude Monet's Water Lilies








"Ovid Would Bristle" after Francesco Mosca's Atalanta & Meleager with the Calydonian Boar and the sculptor's inaccurate depiction of the myth.
