Last Few Days to Order

This weekend marks THE FINAL MOST IMPORTANT WEEKEND for Pacific Prescription: Leukemia Cyclone! https://www.finishinglinepress.com/product/pacific-prescription-by-magdalena-louise-hirt/ If you haven't ordered it yet, please do so this weekend! 🧡All I aim to do is break 100 in sales with each book, and I am not there yet! 📚This sailing collection is so close to my heart, and I would love if it would be close to yours too. ❤️⛵️ Support leukemia awareness, support adventure, support survival, and support poetry! 🌎 What would life be without taking time to look at and read art that examines humanity? See an example poem below:



"forgotten"


~after reading Transparencies by Meg Bateman



there’s a silence in the air


as I take in the group of poems—



the words that linger—


jaws, tentacles, licks, jowls


—and I am swallowed



into a scottish life—


braken, heather, thistle, clover


—have the flowers grown over me


here, land bound, a cure in my blood



have I lost myself in the evergreen


of dunes, the shore of the big pond



jaw raised, can I sing my way out


will the ocean breath me in


—make me interesting again



me—a mother wolf, four cubs


dragged about in my sharp teeth


rolled around by my rough paws



there are no bagpipes on the wind


here—no heather, no thistle


only store-bought blackberries



dè mise dhutsa—what am I to you—


sister, savior, sailor—seasickness,


anxiety turns my stomach—washed up


on the shore, no movement, waves


lap, claw, pull on my waters



the wind moves the trees


—like the soft bark-colored fur


of a squirrel—I’m unseen


scurrying with restlessness



the acorn drops—Fall arrives


am I to sink in the sand with worms


or find my blood and bones in deep sea
