Memoir Poetry

Most people would argue that poetry is about writing what’s inside you.  Sometimes, though, it’s about writing what you would like to be inside you.

It’s good she
 
said It’s
good to
 
Look
from pen to
paper pad to
coffee cup -black
filled- to black
and white cat on
her lap
 
Smell the thrum
            cadence
            of rotted Cyprus
and green alli-
 
gators
 
in the soft
bloop pup
bubbles
of the living
mud
 
What more
 
could a woman need

About Wendy L. Koenig

I was born in Colorado, but raised on a small homestead in Illinois. I served in the USAF right out of high school. After my stint in the military was finished, I returned home and had a horse stable. My first piece to be printed was a short children’s fiction, Jet’s Stormy Adventure, serialized in The Illinois Horse Network. It was a natural fit, given my business. Later, I attended University of Iowa's famed summer workshops and writing programs. Since that time, I have authored and co-authored numerous books. Several of my novels and short stories have won international awards and have appeared in multiple venues.
