WEB EXTRA: Connie Dover Reads <I>Suler Monday</I>

Celtic singer and songwriter Connie Dover's first published collection of poetry is called Winter Count (published by Unholy Day Press). Dover's poems have already received acclaim, including this from poet Li-Young Lee: "A lively blend of narrative and song, the voice in these poems...speaks out of the richness of family canon and apocrypha." Here, she reads the poem Suler Monday.

Kansas City, MO – Suler Monday

Suler Monday

liked his peas with

water gravy on the side

chicken necks fried hard

turnips mashed and shiny

mixed with collards in the grease

from Olive's hog
