Catching That Good 'Butterfly' Air

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

Stoykova-Klemer’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” locally, nationally and internationally.

A native of Bulgaria, she holds an MFA in Writing from Spalding University in Louisville.      For Saturday’s Poem, here’s Stoykova-Klemer’s,

The Most

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,

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.
