Cristina M. R. Norcross


Spirit slips through cracks—
the open mouth of the universe,
the dancing limbs of wood
that bang in the wind,
trying to find a way in.

Cristina M. R. Norcross is the founding editor of Blue Heron Review and the author of 7 poetry collections, who likes to bend metal to her will, as a jewelry designer, and spends time being very quiet underneath a weeping willow tree.
