Online Poetry: Medicine for the Soul featuring Karren Alenier

Event Categories:

Karren Alenier has a new book coming out from Broadstone Books, where Dead Shark on the N Train was published.

Here is a the title poem from the new book:



how we hold on


my mother kept a steamer trunk

with classic clothes immune to fad

my husband owned a cedar chest

packed with bits reins and riding whip

I am neither fashionista

nor ardent horse enthusiast

in my chest an aging heart brims

with blood both beautiful and swift
