Text Box: April might bring Spring Showers but it also fills the air with poetry.  In honor of this month, we are highlighting one of our favorite local poets, Kim Dower!
No One Bleeds Forever
For Grace Paley
They sat on the bench --Washington Square Park
Grace and my mother, before I was born
my mother with my older brother,
Grace with her own.
Quirky, my mother told me, years later,
when I asked, she was so different before
she wrote her stories, before my mother 
would move uptown into her new life.
They had the Bronx in common -- the place
no one wants to admit they’re from.

Grace would wear these hats she’d tell me, 
we had so much to talk about the babies those feelings
she was bossy, a young female writer l950
sounds so romantic now, but Grace had to scoop
her children up and give them baths,
just like my mother, had to stick thermometers in them,
feed them green purees from jars, had rough hands
from washing out diapers.
And, like her characters, she had hope, just like my
mother who always believed, no one bleeds forever.

Kim Dower’s newest collection, Slice of Moon -- "unexpected and sublime," --  "O" Magazine -- was published in September 2013. Her first collection, Air Kissing on Mars appeared on the Poetry Foundation’s Contemporary Best Sellers list. Kim’s work has appeared in Garrison Keillor's, "The Writer's Almanac," and Ted Kooser's, "American Life in Poetry," as well as in Ploughshares, Barrow Street, and Eclipse. http://kimdowerpoet.com.
