"The Girl Ran Wild" a poem by Stephanie Glazier
Our ongoing series "Poetically Speaking" continues. On occasion we will bring you interviews with poets and writers, or we will post a poem, like this one, for your enjoyment.
"This is a poem about the experience of being a parent and a child at the same time and about the envy we can have for our siblings-- the miraculous combination of chemicals that make them them and us... us," writes Stephanie Glazier.
Glazier’s poems appear or are forthcoming in the Iraq Literary Review, Alaska Quarterly Review, The Fourth River and others. She has been a Lambda Fellow in poetry and holds an MFA from Antioch University Los Angeles. Glazier was the former head of Michigan State University's Center for Poetry. She lives and works in Portland, Oregon and is learning Hebrew.
