The Red Beads and other poems











HERE is a link to my poem, The Red Beads, first published in First Things. At the bottom of the page there are also links to my poems When, Eleven, and Kyrielle.

My audio recording of The Red Beads is online HERE.

I wrote the poem a few years ago following a Sunday morning trip to the Maldonado feria (flea market) in Maldonado, Uruguay.
