Poetry by Jeff Parent
third place winner of the 2017 Blodwyn Memorial Prize in poetry
“‘Inside After’ is a simple delight of a poem from start to finish. The down-to-earth, understated wit immediately draws the reader not just into the poem, but directly into the drawer, and you don’t ever really need to leave. You are invited into a surreal, intimate moment and you, the reader, become a part of this fantastic, wonderful thing.”
