*split ends*

Posted by Daniela Elza on Nov 11 2022

Tickled to see my poem split ends won the 1st Honourable Mention spot in the Oregon Poetry Society Contest on the theme of The Moon.

Judges’ comments truly capture it:

“split ends” constructs a series of surreal, decentering images stitching together, in ways imagined rather than prescribed, the loose fabric of human existence. As in reality, in the poem our lives are comprised of fragmentary impressions that elude chronology and hover in the forefront of memory without aligning.”

Thank you to the judge who gave it some love. It has been around for a while staring longingly at the moon. You can read the winning entries here. split ends will be published in Verseweavers (early 2023).
