After reading “The Heart” by Ryan Van Winkle, I felt like I’d been punched in the gut. So it was obviously a great poem. There were moments of fleeting hope and then a severe reminder of human frailty, finished with a beautiful dash of joy.

You can read “The Heart” here.

Ryan Van Winkle’s poetry has appeared AGNI, The Prairie Schooner, The American Poetry Review, and other places. He lives in Edinburgh and has a collection of poetry that will be published this year.
