New Look

We thought it might be a good idea to change the look of KTA’s website.  Hopefully you’ll find this format a little more user-friendly!

It’s been a busy month as we’ve been putting together the first issue of the magazine.  There are some aspects of publication and production that have been rewarding and amazing in more ways than we ever thought possible.  We can’t wait for the final product to become a tangible reality that we can share with you!

In the meantime, we thought you’d enjoy today’s poets.org “poem of the day” from John Montague.  Happy Memorial Day Weekend.

Silences
by John Montague
for Elizabeth

1
Poetry is a weapon, and should be used,
though not in the crudity of violence.
It is a prayer before an unknown altar,
a spell to bless the silence.

2
There is a music beyond all this,
beyond all forms of grievance,
where anger lays its muzzle down
into the lap of silence.

3
Or some butterfly script,
fathomed only by the other,
as supple fingers draw
a silent message from the tangible.
