After Ovid

Evan D. Williams


I scraped a handful of snow from the ledge of the diner window, asking for as many birthdays
as crystals of ice, but forgetting the whole frozen ocean, my inheritance, the sleek black mink
living under the frozen log, my benefactor, and the sleeping vines, my blind trust.


Evan D. Williams's poetry and flash fiction has appeared in Stillwater, Penned Parenthood, The Hartskill Review, The Mud Season Review, IthacaLit, Borderlands, and Tipton Poetry Journal. An ekphrastic chapbook collaboration with Filipino-American poet Jose Perez Beduya is forthcoming from Praxis (Lagos, Nigeria.) Williams lives in the hazy foothills of the Appalachians with his wife and cats.
