Visit Poetry Daily right now to see a nice feature on Kate Northrop: wonderful poet, wonderful teacher, wonderful Wyoming resident. While you’re there, read “Delphinium,” a (beautiful) sample from Northrop’s recently published Clean (Persea Books), which is available here.
From “Delphinium”: “I am awake Do not touch me / I will be awake all night”.
Northrop is the author of Back Through Interruption and Things Are Disappearing Here, a New York Times Book Review “Editor’s Choice” and finalist for the James Laughlin Award. She teaches at the University of Wyoming and lives in Laramie. Check out her website to see about readings and other publications.
Go read, everyone!
