DKA Poetry Contest First Prize: "Statuary"

John Kuhn's winning poem is up at DKA for your reading pleasure.

Here's the first stanza:


Shrouded, wound about in mists as ancient
as Leviathan, hidden as his yawning lair
Atlantis in clouded absinthian waters,
they lie, awaiting splendor’s blade to lay them bare.
