by Katie Cloutte




Katie Cloutte spent four years soaking up some much needed poetry wisdom at the University of Richmond before receiving her MFA from New England College. With some erasure books on the horizon, Katie will add to her few publications. A Pushcart nominated poet, you can currently see her work in The Homestead Review, Ping-Pong Magazine, deLuge Literary and Arts Journal, and Certain Circuits. She is currently living in Oxford, UK thickening her snarky vocabulary.





For text readers, This erasure poem

features the theme of synchronized swimming with a focus on feminism and love. Highlighted words include:



drown in water-land


sleepless mothers

locked lovers        flaming


fell into        midnight
