Two Poems

DUNCAN GAMBLE is a poet-farmer studying neuroscience and music at the University of Vermont. He pretends he is a real adult and aspires to be a real artist. Every poem he has ever written is a love poem. Ask him. He loves rain, gardening, running, heartbeats, muddy feet, and blue pens. He is fond of writing letters; dogs; a good chef’s knife; and sunwarmed leather. He dreams about building his own house in the mountains. His work can be found elsewhere in back-issues of the Sandy River Review. Read more →
