Today's poem is "Obey Gravity"

from New Orleans Review

Cynthia Arrieu-King is a volunteer at the tomato aquarium. She keeps Sophia Kartsonis' Intaglio, winner of the 2006 Tom and Stan Wick Prize, close at hand. They both live and work in Cincinnati, Ohio where they eat scallops and discuss what's best for you.

Ariana-Sophia Kartsonis is a unionizer of boycotting planetariums. Collaborations with Cynthia Arrieu-King appear in Court Green, and were co-winners of The Academy of American Poets Prize as selected by Molly Peacock. Sophia is an avid lover of a chapbook called The Small Anything City, some cats named Drusilla, Gladys and Kenny (plus The Geeks) and emus of every persuasion.
