Omnia Vincit Amor, or The Power of Love in the Three Elements – Benjamin West, 1809

We’re not sure we’ve ever seen “love” defined as wonderfully as it is in “Cape Valentine,” one of 5 fantastically madcap poems by Catfish McDaris featured in our Spring 2016 issue. (And should you want to read even more of Catfish’s work, you could check out his new collection “Sleeping with the Fish,” now available from Pski’s Porch Publishing.)

LOVE IS A RUNAWAY TRAIN
An elephant stampede
The Grand Canyon at sunrise

Mona Lisa’s whisper and laughter
A hurricane of dreams on the precipice of life.
