'Catching' that rare air


“How to Write a Poem?  Catch the air around the butterfly.”
– Katerina Stoykova-Klemer

Katerina’s poems have appeared in publications throughout the U.S. and Europe, including The Louisville Review, Margie, Adirondack Review and others.   The leader of a poetry group in Lexington, KY, she also hosts “Accents,” a radio show for literature, art and culture on WRFL Radio in Lexington.  And she operates the independent Accents Publishing “for brilliant voices.” Accents has published or announced books by local, national and international authors.

A native of Bulgaria, she holds an MFA in Writing from Spalding University in Louisville.  For a look at her interesting poetic style, here’s her short 2008 poem "The Most."

Welcome,
Last Resort.


We meet at last,
Plan Z.


I’ve heard a lot about you,
Worst Case Scenario.


I look forward to
working with you,
When-all-else-fails.


It’s going to be you and I now.
Do you feel lucky to end up with me?

Hey, it’s okay.

After the initial shock
wears off,
you too,
will try to make
the most of me.
