poem: winner of the 2015 Third Coast Poetry Prize (judged by Ralph Angel) for “Thereafter” Ralph Angel writes: “Sometimes language speaks louder than words. And sometimes self-consciousness keeps up with it—the language for which we have no language—’the something // out there after you. “Thereafter” is a marvelous depiction of the mind in action.” http://www.thirdcoastmagazine.com/contests/
