Red Rover

Amy Nash

That hotel I keep promising to build on top of some devil’s

backbone about to tumble into the ocean

is no brothel. No one

gets paid to discard used heroes into the fire               ring. Send them over.

Amy Nash’s poems have appeared in a range of journals, including Common Ground Review, Blood Lotus, and Northwind, and a number of anthologies, including Adrienne Rich: A Tribute Anthology, The Heart of All That Is: Reflections on Home, and Legacy of Light: Poems for the Gay Head Lighthouse.

  1. Great poem. More than deserving of wider recognition. I marvel at the output from your heart, mind, and key stroke
