Chapbook Update 13: Elizabeth S. Wolf

More from the chapbook Using An Ink Pen To Escape My Cage, written by Jon Albert Kaspar. Mr. Kaspar resides in Virginia. This is a sophisticated collection. Mr. Kaspar played with form, including some sonnets and a ghazal. The imagery here is wonderful. From The Ballad of the Ambiguous Prisoner:


Over stuffed cages

Filled with bad poets

I run on a wheel

and go nowhere

I had burnt pancakes for breakfast

that were ice cold

I didn’t realize this was a game
