“Type-O, Premature,” Collaborative Art/Poetry Broadside by Artist Malissa Long Wilson and Poet Roy Beckemeyer

“Type O, Premature,” features original textile art by Malissa Long Wilson. My poem was written as an ekphrastic piece inspired by her artwork. The image seemed to me to be very organic and put me in mind of the tragedy of miscarriage. After I sent her the poem, Malissa shared with me that the piece was one she did during her recovery from cancer. We hope you find this broadside as emotionally charged as we did.
