Poetry Excerpts from Kartika Review, Fall 2013, Issue #16

So pleased to be a part of Kartika Review, Fall 2013, Issue #16! Go to page 109 to read my creative nonfiction piece, "Grandfather Walking," featuring the photography of Jyoti Omi Chowdhury.

Some poetry excerpts via editor Eugenia Leigh:

"grunted for blood, chanted // allegiances to the hunt—and I, lead / and chief, was first to howl" — R.A. Villanueva

"we tiptoed over bones of neighbors, umbrella spines, scorched radish-gardens, we flashed our scars" — April Naoko Heck

"He picked up a baby / Snake and apologized / Before tossing it / Onto a land mine." — Minh Pham

"even in passing, the sight of God / will finish us for good. // Later the newborn smell will fade // into something less clean" — Chris ChrisandYuri Santiago

"Or the boy // crouched over her, shadows moving like cuts / across his skin." — Mia Ayumi Malhotra

"The convent burns, / each nun convinced in what she's owed. / And marriage merely acquisition: / prettier empty bowls." — Michelle Chan Brown
