I’m very excited to have one of my Mexico poems, a prose poem, in the inaugural issue of The Berlin Review. If I ever get to do an expanded version of Eyes of the Cuervo/Ojos del Crow, I’ll be sure to include this poem. Here’s hoping you enjoy it!

Thanks, all you kind people! I’ve heard hummingbirds are expected here in Indian Hills over the next few weeks. We’re getting our feeder reader to hang out of bear reach….
Just delightful, , Joe, the way your words flash between tiny birds and tiny stitches!
I remember this fine poem. Congratulations!
“The whirr of hummingbirds
gladdens the morning like
musical light a spangled dancer
scatters. Something green in the
sound, a mid-May wildness. The
world is a flower, it says, and the
taste of it is sacred.”
Good work! Thanks for sharing it.
This is sweet. I enjoy your Mexico poems very much.
