“I gather seven years worth of rain
I am a burr of water
I am a mule of rhythm
A cup drawn by water marks a ghost of thirst
I am sweat across petals
I am the basin where you grow”
Welcome to the online literary journal of the Bronx Writers Center, a program of the Bronx Council on the Arts, that is devoted to the development of writers, the literary community and the audience for literary programs in the Bronx.
Enjoy some new pieces, edited by Carolyn Ferrell, and drop us a note to let us know what you’re doing to warm up this winter.
