New Book! How Do We Create Love? by Michael H. Brownstein

He is both wet from the early rain 
and dry from the change in wind. 
He greets her warmly, 
places the blossom carefully 
on the old wooden table, 
the agate on the windowsill 
near the candles on the mantelpiece. 
Their hug is their hug.

Love is created in many ways. 
This is but one of them.


Michael H. Brownstein has been widely published throughout the small and literary presses. His 2018 book, A Slipknot Into Somewhere Else: A Poet's Journey To The Borderlands of Dementia (Cholla Needles), has received much critical praise. A Slipknot Into Somewhere Else is a journey into the ethereal, where synapse bridges syntax. - David Evans - Feature Editor, Poets International
Michael’s work has appeared in The Café Review, American Letters and Commentary, Skidrow Penthouse, Xavier Review, Hotel Amerika, Free Lunch, Cholla Needles, Meridian Anthology of Contemporary Poetry, Poetrysuperhighway, The Pacific Review, and others.
In addition, he has nine poetry chapbooks including The Shooting Gallery (Samsidat Press, 1987), Poems from the Body Bag (Ommation Press, 1988), A Period of Trees (Snark Press, 2004), What Stone Is (Fractal Edge Press, 2005), Firestorm: A Rendering of Torah (Camel Saloon Press, 2012), The Possibility of Sky and Hell: From My Suicide Book (White Knuckle Press, 2013) and The Katy Trail, Mid-Missouri, 100 Degrees Outside and Other Poems (Kind of Hurricane Press, 2013).
