‘Wind chimes’ in Cacti Fur

My poem ‘Wind chimes’ has been published in Cacti Fur’s second issue.

I wrote the first version of this poem in college at the Jiménez-Porter Writers’ House. Over the years, it’s gone through several revisions. I’m happy that it’s finally found a home in Cacti Fur.

The poem details a woman who wishes to be a mother, but has had several miscarriages. And, in order to deal with them and mourn what has not yet formed, she obsesses over creating wind chimes and hanging them on her tree outside. I’ve never had to deal with a miscarriage, and I hope that this poem does not offend, but offers solace and understanding.

You can read the poem here.
