What I’m Reading: Ekphrastic Poems by Sara Biggs Chaney

Today I’m reading and re-reading ekphrastic poems by Sara Biggs Chaney at The Boiler. They’re based on the photographs of Katerina Plotnikova, who uses live animals and striking color in her photographs — they’re very evocative. So, too, are Sara’s poems.

From “II. Brown Bear“:

I smell my death on your belly
and I do not flinch.

Your face               a cannon
on the hinge of my neck

See the photos that inspired the poems here and here.
