A poem of mine is up for a National Magazine Award. The poem is called “Talking w/humans is my only way to learn,” & takes its title from Microsoft’s twitter bot, Tay. That phrase was her mantra in the 24 hours she was… Awake? Alive?
The poem was originally published in The Puritan by guest editor Sonnet L’Abbé, in the Irish journal Banshee, & it’s in my chapbook from last fall, Summer. Enormous gratitude to these publishers & editors.
There are so many great poems on this list, & I am happy to call many of these talented poets my friends.
