The CLOCKHOUSE Volume Nine submissions period will open on August 15. In the meantime, here's an excerpt from Volume Two:
from Nancy Kricorian’s poem, Letter to Palestine (with Armenian proverbs):
In a foreign place, the exile has no face. You wake up in the morning and forget where you are. The smell of coffee from the kitchen. The sound of slippers across the linoleum floor. It could be any country. When you look in the mirror you see the eyes of your grandfather. He expects something from you, but he won’t tell you what.
