Endi Bogue Hartigan* is the author of /One Sun Storm/, which was
selected for the 2008 Colorado Prize for Poetry, and a chapbook /out of
the flowering ribs/ in collaboration with artist Linda Hutchins, which
will be out this fall. Her poetry has appeared or is forthcoming in
/Colorado Review, Verse, Volt, Chicago Review, Pleaides, Peep/Show,
LVNG/, and other journals. With a collective of poets she co-curates the
Spare Room reading series, and she is a member of the collaborative
group 13 Hats. She lives in Portland with her husband poet Patrick
Playter Hartigan and their son.
*David Mutschlecner* is the author of four books of poetry, including
/Sign/ and /Enigma and Light,/ both published by Ahsahta Press.
Recently, he has had work in /New American Writing/. Mutschlecner's
work explores theopoetics, where poetry enters the realm of theology as
a nondogmatic light, where theology casts its own color upon poetry.
Mutschlecner hopes that if both are poured out, one for the other,
perhaps a new kenosis is accomplished. The poet lives and works in Los
Alamos, New Mexico.
All night long
Love and the demolished lot
the old St. Francis building bulldozed up
today, the last of its rubble
All night long the birth
of a child
All day long
the birth of a child
& gifts to wrap
with white bows
I feel thy finger and find thee
touching the flute hole in my head,
the worm hole in my heart,
that riffs itself, coiling
into the music of some other sphere.
Come at Christmas,
come at Easter,
pinwheeled to and from my need.
