A Slow Moving Stream, new book of poetry
In her book, A Slow Moving Stream, poet Diane Moore follows the languid Bayou Teche from its source at Port Barre to Morgan City, Louisiana where it empties into the mighty Atchafalaya River, making a journey that traces Cajun origins in a lovely, lonely landscape. The book is illustrated with photographs by botanist Dr. Victoria I. Sullivan, a painting by Morris Raphael, and the glasswork for the cover was done by Karen Bourque.

Your Chin Doesn’t Want to Marry is in preparation for publishing by Border Press in December, 2016. This book was privately published in 1980, and now I’m making it available publicly. Artwork for the cover is from a glass piece by Karen Bourque, entitled Pickerel Weed, which you can see to the left. As a preview, here is a poem from that manuscript:
