Ode To Alternatives

Keith Leonard

"I think that were beginning to remember that the first poets didn't come out of a classroom, that poetry began when somebody

walked off of a savanna or out of a cave and looked up at the sky with wonder and said, 'Ahhh.' That was the first poem."

– Lucille Clifton

Keith Leonard's first collection of poems, Ramshackle Ode, is forthcoming from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt in April 2016. He's also the author of a chapbook, Still, the Shore, published by YesYes Books.
