In Memoriam

Edith Emma Cantrell

My Mother, Much Missed

28th May 1930 to 19th June 2008

To the woman who not only brought me into this world, but bequeathed to me the joy of books and words. She was a poet herself, but since she wrote only for the pleasure of it, my two sisters and I didn't learn of this creative pursuit until well into our own adulthood.

Head This Off


By Mark Cantrell

If you can keep your head
When all around you
Are losing theirs,
Then, you must be
The axe man,
For it is easy
To remain sanguine,
When yours is not the neck
On the block...
