A Poem: Ode

by

comment
Hook me up
to you.
Just take my
hand—yes,
that’s it,
and put
it to your face.
Then your breasts,
then your waist.
Feel how cold
it is? The icy
fingers pulling
at your thin
outer layers?
That is love.
That is what you
should be feeling
when the glow
of the sun
hits you
and you see
the glow,
the nakedness
of this world,
my foxes face,
my disfigurement,
and how they are
always meant
for you.

  • What to Expect from Craft Beverage Festivals this Summer

    Even as things begin to return to normal post pandemic peak, this summer's craft beverage festivals in the Hudson Valley will look very different than past years, if they are event happening at all. While the most conservative organizers have straight up cancelled their events, some are taking their festivals online, and yet others are hoping increased safety precautions will make an in-person event viable.
