New poem up at Mead Magazine

Mead: The Magazine of Literature and Libations has published my new poem Burnham’s Island, Prairie Lake.

Go check it out, and while you are there, have a drink or two with the other wonderful poets to be found there.

  1. Great poem, Paul! I love those 13-syllable lines. Michael Waters says that alternating lines of 13 and 7 syllables come closer to American speech than any other metrical scheme. I think “Burnham’s Island” is pitch-perfect. Those 13-count lines are usually followed by longer ones which can be broken down into 2 7-8 syllable lines, achieving the same result. Bravo!
