Michael Buebe

Poetry | Kent State University | Class of 2022

In Circles by Hand, Michael Buebe’s poems meander across the page, each its own lazy river softly humming a quiet prayer or nocturne, a footnote or flicker that draws you into the hush of its hidden movement. They bathe you in rainwater, streetlight, and starfall, before sending you back into the day, alert to all the small things you had been missing. —Catherine Wing
