"April Snow"


The new issue of the Spoon River Poetry Review is out with work from Jean Valentine, Marcela Sulak, Joshua Corey, Jeff Friedman, Hoa Nguyen, Yu Xiang, Rachel Zucker, and a poem by Jason Tandon:

After we have pushed back
from the Easter table,
retired to the front porch
bathed in a late afternoon sun
where a couple of uncles
still have room to guzzle beer
and suck the salty marrow
from the cracked shanks of a roasted lamb,
an evening flurry
thickens overnight
into a six-inch snuffing
of the sodden, spring green.
To read the whole poem, please consider pre-ordering a copy of Jason’s forthcoming collection Quality of Life. Thank you for your support!
