I
discern
a
tiny
space
in
one
of
fifteen
minutes;
two
days
later,
I
deduce
which
one,
approach
it
and
peer
inside
(can’t
tell
whether
it’s
bright
or
dark),
hoping
to
glimpse
a
poem —
or
the
closest
edge
of
one.

Jethro McClellan was born in Boston, moved out West before he turned five, and has called Boulder home for most of his life. He wrote his first poem in a Waldorf boarding school in New Hampshire, and never once looked back.
