I am happy to post my poem, "To Alejandra Pizarnik" recently published by Quill & Parchment.

To Alejandra Pizarnik (an excerpt)
by Diane Dehler

I touched a toe of
Alejandra's dream
coaxed her back from
suicide. With a hard
boot she cracks the ice
crusted over a puddle
by her grave. Tosses
a faded rose from her
sight, a falling away
of dried petals and
years, a permanent
exile of a poet.
