Lovely sonnet by Jessica Greenbaum in For You Today and her abecedarian poem is also quite good, A Poem for S, but I’m curious about the missing letter.

Quite a compelling poem by Tony Hoagland in Note to Reality.

Saskia Hamilton adds to the mystery of foreign words with Zwijgen.

I Have Heard of Krakens

“Lord, when shall we be done growing? As long as we have anything more to do, we have done nothing. So, now, let us add Moby Dick to our blessings, and step from that. Leviathan is not the biggest fish; – I have heard of Krakens.”

– Herman Melville in a letter to Hawthorne, in response to Hawthorne’s praise of Moby-Dick
