Special Soap

Bellingham, Washington is a hotbed of poetry judging by the quality of the submissions Third Wednesday receives from there.  We almost always find something worthy of publication.  This one, by Sarah Murphy-Kangas, is a prime example.  It’s Third Wednesday’s poem of the week.


I Have No Thoughts of Cosmological Matters – Our Poem of the Week

This week’s poem is a Triolet from M. B. Powell, a Washington poet who has three tiolets in the winter issue of Third Wednesday.  The poet’s chapbook, Lovers, Mothers, Killers, Others is published by Finishing Line Press2013.
A poem of eight lines, rhyming abaaabab and so structured that the first line recurs as the fourth and seventh and the second as the eighth.
