New poem in The Minnessota Review: American Fair

Happy to see this poem find a home. I’ll post it here when it comes out in the autumn 2017. While “American Fair" could be about a fair in the Midwest, it was written while I was in residence at a writing colony in Vermont. Some of us went to the local fair, looking for poems of course. There’s a photo of me sitting on a tractor writing this, surrounded by men sitting on various other farm equipment watching the women’s skillet toss.
