A poem by Darren C. Demaree: "Emily As Out In A Storm We Want More Storm"

My poems have appeared, or are scheduled to appear in numerous magazines/journals, including the South Dakota Review, Meridian, New Letters, Diagram, and the Colorado Review.


I am the author of five poetry collections, most recently "The Nineteen Steps Between Us" (2016, After the Pause). I am the Managing Editor of the Best of the Net Anthology and Ovenbird Poetry.


I am currently living and writing in Columbus, Ohio with my wife and children.

EMILY AS OUT IN A STORM WE WANT MORE STORM


Gorged on the shadows
the clouds provided,

we look like criminals
amidst each bolt,

each off-rhythm that cuts
the sky in two

& gives one decision to make.
Can you dance

in such chaos?  Emily
& I, we dance

& we ask for more storm
in the progression

of our souls,
as they writhe together

in a landscape that
will always be clashing.


 ~Darren C. Demaree
