Poem: "Storm's Breath"

I was so thrilled to receive my copy recently of Free State Review's newest issue, including my "Storm's Breath," a Lake Michigan poem! Thank you, thank you, thank you to Barrett Warner for bringing this beautiful collective lyrical beast into the world!

     and every time the waves hiss back
     a million tiny worms
     peek out of holes to breathe

     and then slip back.  Their world, 
     water.  And breath.  And water
     again. (read more below)

Thanks also to Debra Marquart, in whose inspiring and motivating workshop at Iowa State a very early version of this poem was birthed, and to all the members of that workshop group. If you like my poem, reproduced below, you're sure to like the issue, so why not order it here, right now?
