Today on the National Poetry Month blog roll, I'm featuring Karo Barsamian, a Southeastern Wisconsin poet that is currently living in Australia. She is due back stateside sometime soon, and was gracious enough to send me some poems from the land down under - which is a term she probably hates - but I'm not sure.
I first met Karen at AllWriters' as a Wednesday night student. Her poetry is beautiful, sensual and wrapped with emotion. I hope you enjoy her work.
Untitled #1 by Karo Barsamian
When I hug you I like to think about how you're electrical
how we're machines
with small turbines,
and we break.
I think eons ahead, where our bodies are not.
I like to think about how we're electrical,
how we will break.
Karo Barsamian's bio information was unavailable at the time of this post.
