DIURNAL by Philip Kobylarz Posters re-postered. New music comes, is played, goes. Children, locked in school, wait to erupt in energy that running cures. The bus empties itself at urinals of stops. Dogs parade home, attending corners, select trees and corners, knowing exactly where they are going.
Philip Kobylarz’s recent work appears or will appear in Connecticut Review, Basalt, Santa Fe Literary Review, New American Writing, Poetry Salzburg Review and has appeared in Best American Poetry. He also has two recently published books: Rues, by Blue Light Press of San Francisco; and Now Leaving Nowheresville, a collection of fiction. A book length essay, Nearest Istanbul, is also forthcoming.
