Read (and listen to) Long Meadow!


Artist/Poet Jon Cotner has a poem, “Long Meadow,” over at The American Reader. Not only can you read this amazing poem but it has audio!

I still have yet to    adjust to    North American life I    can’t say exactly when
the sun sets these days    I know in Berlin    you’ll get daylight until    9:30
or so    but    here there may very well be just    an hour hour-and-a-half    of daylight remaining though the sky    is blue    I see puffy    mountainous clouds
in the distance    a gull    its wings tipped black    gigantic trees I can’t name
reflective pond.
