Three New Poems at Connotation Press

I have three new poems just published at Connotations Press: An Online Artifact.

The Ice Finally Goes Out on Lake Chetek

Leaving Chetek on Sunday Night

Two Bedroom House For Sale in Chetek, WI

Associate Editor Julie Brooks Barbour introduces our lead poet this month:

These poems by Paul Scot August are haunted by desolate structures: a “shuttered canning plant” and the twisted pier on a lake. There is also spiritual desolation in these poems, but the speaker faces it head on—plunging feet into icy water or standing on the rails just after a train passes, “prepared for the darkness ahead.” Here is the risk of failure. Here’s a ticket out but the speaker dares to stand still and look back.
