New Issue of Natural Bridge

by jtandon

The Spring 2013 issue of Natural Bridge is out with poetry by Walter Bargen and Jennifer Perrine; fiction by Jaimee Wriston Colbert; non-fiction by Nancy McCabe; and an interview with Meghan Daum. My thanks to the editors for publishing my poem “Consolation,” which is forthcoming in my new collection Quality of Life. Here’s an excerpt:



     Alone in New York City

     and staggering from street to street

     my friend calls again

     in the middle of the night.

     He sings a song all slur and static,

     confesses to sex

     in a bathroom stall.
