Today's poem is "Expedition"

from The Carolina Quarterly

William Huhn's narrative essays have appeared in The American Literary Review, Tulane Review, Fugue, Strings, many other publications, and most recently in Stories of Music, Volume 2 (Timbre Press) which includes an MP3 of his fiddle playing. His nonfiction has been twice nominated for a Pushcart Prize and has been cited five times as a "Notable Essay" in The Best American Essays series. He and his wife are based just outside of New York City, where she dances for American Liberty Ballet. A chapbook of Huhn's poetry was published by Red Dancefloor Press as part of their Prime Poets Series, and his credits include a letter in The New Yorker about James Thurber, published on the same page as the last words to appear in the magazine, also a letter, by the poet James Merrill while he lived.
