Arsenic Lobster Poetry Journal Published FDU MFA Alum Flower Conroy’s Poetry
FDU MFA Creative Writing alum Flower Conroy’s poetry has been published in Issue Forty, Spring 2016 of Arsenic Lobster Poetry Journal. In “I Wish the Train Was This Empty Every Day,” Flower writes:
When heartbreak was my art, I went 11 days without eating.
I floated was how I explain it without explaining, time was birdlike,
I thought I’d never tap my way out of the shell.
