Lara Candland

buttercups rannunculae
pasque flower anemone
hepatica retrimmed in crimson
idle bells
exultant garland
our slippers pledge & tiptoe
around sprigs of unpuzzled mosses


the birdling's blithe buttonhole
our hems tarnished
at meadow's traverse
chafed by august sun
summer's album closes

Lara Candland's first book, Alburnum of the Green and Living Tree came out in 2010 from BlazeVox.  Her work has appeared in many journals, most recently Unsaid, American Poetry Journal, and Phoebe.  She recently received a Special Mention in the Larry Levis Poetry Prize, 2012.  She is also a co-founder and librettist for Seattle Experimental Opera, an award-winning playwright and screenwriter, and a member of Lalage, a duo featuring live electronic voice manipulations, whose first CD, Lalage: Live on Sonarchy, was released last year.
