Poem up at The Indianapolis Review


I’m delighted that my poem “My Mother’s Ghost Scrubs the Floor at 2 a.m.” has been published in a special double issue of The Indianapolis Review featuring the work of Indianapolis based writers and artists. There’s also a recording.

So it’s official: I am now an Indiana poet! Many thanks to editor Natalie Solmer for accepting this piece.

  1. Good timing for Halloween week … a great recording …
    Indiana is blessed to have some small claim to you, Robert!
    This is eerily identifiable … especially given my frequent nights unable to sleep due to leg pain! I’ve not yet found any ghosts at work on my dirty floors … One particular line, if I let it play with my brain a while, could very well conjure a ghost: “We’ve long splashed through that puddle of contention” … some contentions refuse to resolve even when (especially when?) the other is no longer perpetrating.
