Narional Poetry Month: Megan A. Volpert

(Megan A. Volpert)
what mexico has in common with china
the sun seems always to prefer rising
advantage is in the length of her eyelashes
mechanizing bobble wings for wooden butterflies
sea in sea out sea in sea glasses
a lobster's commodity is not at all about texture
what butterfly has in common with lobster
the sea seems always to rise preferably
eyelashes are the length of her commodity
bobble wings mechanizing for wooden mexico
sun up sun down sun up sun glasses
a texture is not about china at all

MEGAN A. VOLPERT will read this Saturday as part of a presentation by Sibling Rivalry Press at the Georgia Center for the Book. As a performance poet known as Dr. Madelyn Hatter, Volpert "prefers making art in response to art, and never drinks coffee." Sonics in Warholia, a collection of love letters and hate mail addressing the mysteries of one of the 20th Century's most artful dodgers, is her fourth collection of poems (Sibling Rivalry Press, 2011).  She is currently editing This assignment is so gay: LGBTIQ Poets on the Art of Teaching, to be published in 2013.
