The Poetry Foundation’s mobile app features a generous sampling of classic and contemporary poetry from a wide variety of publishers (including but not limited to Poetry magazine). Stacie Cassarino’s poem “Firework,” from her collection Zero at the Bone (New Issues Press), is available in full.
An excerpt from “Firework”:
Out of the girl came yellow
flowers, came stem & sepal.
You never happened, they said.
The meadow was a narration of lessness.
