Kate Fadick

Sunflower Field in Winter 


their ice-sleeved nibs 
sun-scalds on a river

with no grammar
for the story you must tell

before blackbirds come
redeem all the shiny words    


Kate Fadick's poetry is influenced in part by her working and living in rural Appalachian communities as an ally for economic and environmental justice. Her work has appeared in Kudzu, Pine Mountain Sand & Gravel, Wind '97 and other regional journals. Slipstream, her first chapbook, was released by Finishing Line Press in 2013.
