Art in the Neighborhood 


There are some people who take the time to make sure days are better. Krayna Castelbaum is one of those people. A self-described poetry enthusiast and artist, this local instigator does her share to bring a bit of art to her neighborhood. She takes the time to print and post a poem every month, accessible through her blog, or outside her home behind Spork. These are available to the public. Below is her message, as well as, the poem of the month. 

April 2016
What a wonderful way to kick off National Poetry Month!
The erotic thread, signifying aliveness and vitality, is so delightful. Enjoy!

XXII - All Year Long

1

We break off a branch of poplar catkins.
A hundred birds sing in the tree
Lying beneath it in the garden
We talk to each other
Our tongues in each others mouth.


2
The sultry air is heavy with flower perfumes.
What is there better to do this hot night
Than throw off the covers
And lie together naked?

3
A cold wind blows open the window.
The moon looks in, full and bright.
Not a sound,
Not a voice,
In the night.
Then from behind the bed curtains,
Two giggles.

4
A freezing sky.
The year ends.
Icy winds whirl with snowflakes.
Under the covers
My darling is hotter than midsummer night.
