Balance, Debra Marquart

Debra Marquart

Too careful, that first day, they sat on the floor palm‐to‐palm making church steeples. He showed her the trick where two can lean back‐to‐back in mid‐air and rest easy, if one does not press harder than the other...

Pre-Existing Conditions, Debra Marquart

Debra Marquart

Three weeks ago, my sister went on her lunch break and turned right, for home, rather than left, for the clinic, where she might have been forced to admit to the doctor that the pain in her left arm was something more than...

Door To Door, Debra Marquart

Debra Marquart

Somewhere In A House Where You Are Not, Debra Marquart

Invasive, Debra Marquart Nov 2017

Invasive, Debra Marquart

Debra Marquart

Rather than write the memo

about the troubling colleague

I go out to weed the flowerbed

beat back the carpet of grass

that's overgrown its boundary...

Greyhound Days, Debra Marquart Nov 2017

Greyhound Days, Debra Marquart

Debra Marquart

Because your mother is the Typhoid Mary of travel. Because lightning, blizzards, everything but locusts, plague her travel days. Because that one time in Minneapolis, some pilot-error, failing engine part, or threat of nuclear disaster necessitated an overnight stay, she now refuses to fly.


Ground Oregano, Debra Marquart Nov 2017

Ground Oregano, Debra Marquart

Buoy, Debra Marquart

Debra Marquart

And so you came to realize that a married man is like a drowning victim, when you find him

drenched, adrift and unhappy in the vast ocean of his marriage. And you are always the first...


Mistreated & Misremembered: A Tale Of Two Annes, Elizabeth H. Dunn Nov 2017

Mistreated & Misremembered: A Tale Of Two Annes, Elizabeth H. Dunn

Steeplechase

The two poems and historical notes that I worked on were a part of my interest in both history and poetry, especially since many historical figures remain misunderstood, ignored, or misinterpreted. Throughout my research I tried to find a personal voice for all of the subjects within the poems, Henry VIII, Anne Boleyn, and Anne of Cleves.
