Kerry Carnahan: "Cello"
This week we feature a previously unpublished poem by Kerry Carnahan. Carnahan was born in Kansas, lives in Brooklyn, and works in a converted Chiclets factory. Her poems have appeared in Poetry Ireland Review and North Dakota Quarterly.
Powerful yet fragile, characteristically temperamental, this costly instrument is said more than any other to closely approximate the sound of the human voice.
