Roger Desy

Robert Desy taught literature and creative writing and edited technical manuals but returned to and remains grounded in lyric poetry, often sonnets – trying to give an old form new room, perhaps a new freedom. Samples are in Cider Press, Kenyon, Mid-American, and South Carolina Reviews and Poet Lore.

an index finger
in frost on the outside glass

of a bus window


averting her gaze

the girl in the window seat
looks down at her lap
