Show me!

The winter issue of The Missouri Review arrived in the mail, featuring a cover photo that looks, to me, inspired by Wyeth (a combination of Christina and the sea) and poems by Alex Grant (who is a Facebook friend).

Alex's poems visit the circus, with tantalizing imagery. I especially enjoy the line

She looks at you the way a man with gray hair looks at the ocean

from "The Fortune-Teller." I also was swept away by "The Clown," "The Acrobat," and "The Magician."

Another treat: the bus poems by
Alexandra Teague.

Check it out!
