Hi, blog readers! It’s Wednesday, so it’s time for another Pick-a-Poem post here on the blog. Each week we feature a new poem for you to discover. These poems all come from Poetry Daily, which is a great resource for finding new poetry. This week we’re featuring The Doubles by Kara van de Graaf.
According to her bio, Kara van de Graaf is a Chicago poet. Her first book, “Spitting Image,” has been a finalist for many awards, including the Levis Prize for Poetry from Four Way Books, the New Issues Prize for Poetry, the Crab Orchard Series in Poetry, and others. Her work has appeared in various publications, such as The Southern Review, AGNI, and the Best New Poets anthology. She is currently an editor for Lightbox Poetry, an online educational resource for poetry in the classroom, which she co-founded in 2015 with the poet Richie Hofmann.
