“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,
We meet at last,
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
will try to make
the most of me.
