Curriculum Vitae

by Dante Di Stefano

You are the entire ocean in a drop,
if you are anything. There’s no bluebird
in my heart, but if there were he would perch
on a rhinoceros horn and whistle
sea chanteys to the frigate in your heart.

His poetry, essays, and reviews have appeared in Brilliant Corners, The Los Angeles Review, The Writer’s Chronicle, and elsewhere.
