Below is a sample poem from our featured poet:

The Moon Rides a Black Horse               
(for Lorca) 
The moon is
riding along
the shore
thinking violins
and howling wolves,
the moon is 
riding a black horse,
looking for a widow
who sings
the deep song
llanto of  the unforgiving sea,
buleria of
smokestacks and
The moon 
wants a good
red wine
and a woman 

who can dance.
