Poetica Obscura: Mississippi Petrified Forest Poem
These poems are from a series inspired by reading Atlas Obscura stories while listening to a music genre randomly selected from my list. The poems were written immediately after reading, still while listening to the randomly chosen music. I thought we would cut down a Christmas tree but instead we started a rock collection. It was the wrong time of year. By which I mean I had not yet fast forwarded to however many years it would take for you to turn to stone. Not cold. Not unfeeling.
