It is quite a thing to look left
and see who tracks pace with you,
who takes in time with you,
extends a generous faith.
I am often lost
and would flee the bones that house me,
but this one greets my need with kindness.
This one's hands are there when mine are wanting
and hold my place.
I am writing one poem every day in 2016, and I am using the hashtag #365poems to document my progress.
Essayist, web designer, poet, auto-tonsurer, reliably up at 3 a.m.: it’s hard to describe Elan Morgan in just a few words. If I had to pick a single sentence, though, it’s this: Elan is the person who follows through on those crazy late-night ideas we all toy with and discard. Write one poem per day for 365 days? Sure. Get sober and talk about the experience on national radio? Why not. Survive the gauntlet of thankless office work and design a life on her own terms? Yup.
