New work by faculty member Gabrielle Calvocoressi appears in print and online in the “Poetry at the End of the World” themed podcast from Poetry Magazine:
Captain Lovell [“Dad calls her the Dowager but I call her Aunt G.”]
Dad calls her the Dowager but I call her Aunt G.
Aunt G. at the Polo Lounge. Aunt G. drinking gimlets
by the pool. Aunt G. asking about Babe even
though she’s the only one who sees her that much
anymore. She wears ten rings. Seven on her
right hand, which Dad calls the Seven Stars.
They make the glass seem like it’s going to crack.
