Please welcome another new cleave poet – Carol Lynn Grellas.
One last thing Bury these words - someday they’ll be too real - if read out loud too convoluted - you won’t understand such shocking things - these thoughts and dreams all better left unsaid - conceal the remnants cover up the truth - this final rubbish my only poem - and lasting proof your souvenir - of all that was unspoken. Carol Lynn Grellas is the author of two chapbooks: Litany for Finger Prayers, forthcoming from Pudding House Press and Object of Desire available from Finishing Line Press. She is a two-time Pushcart nominee and widely published in magazines and online journals, including most recently, The Hiss Quarterly, Flutter, Oak Bend Review and an electric chapbook, Desired Things from Gold Wake Press. She lives with her husband, five children and a blind dog named Ginger.
