Two new pieces in Treehouse

treehouse poem caroline kesslerI’m beyond thrilled to have two short pieces in Treehouse, an online magazine that focuses on short writing, both poetry and prose. The editors of Treehouse accepted a poem I’ve been working on (aka coming back to and abandoning and coming back to…) for a while, “A Conversation in the Columbarium,” loosely about San Francisco’s columbarium. They also ask contributors for a “5 Things” list, which could be anything from an Amazon wish list to bodies of water you’re obsessed with. Read the poem and the list on Treehouse’s beautiful site.

Avoid the flourish. Do not be afraid to be weak. Do not be ashamed to be tired. You look good when you’re tired. You look like you could go on forever. Now come into my arms. You are the image of my beauty.
