A new poem by faculty member Laura Kasischke appears online in Poetry:
Recall the Carousel
Recall the carousel. Its round and round.
Its pink lights blinking off and on.
The children’s faces painted garish colors against
an institutional wall. And the genetics. The
We won’t be here too long … Do not step off …
The carousel? Do you recall? As if
we were our own young parents suffering again
after so many hundreds of hours of bliss.
