Cynthia McCain
THE DREAM OF FALLING (Finishing Line Press)

The Dream of Falling Is Cynthia McCain’s most recent chapbook, issued by Finishing Line Press. The poems in this book speak of “things that no one knows to listen for.” Observations of nature, poems celebrating hippos and book clubs, or coping with a broken arm, reveal a writer delighted by details and beauties found in unexpected corners. She sings in praise of Robnett’s Hardware, and solitary walks. While her poems may travel as far as China and the Limpopo River, most reflect the valleys and forests of western Oregon she has explored with such open eyes and open heart.

CYNTHIA McCAIN’s poems have appeared in Blue Heron Review, HEART, The Rumpus, and Halfway Down the Stairs, among other publications. Her first chapbook, Woman and Horse, appeared in 2019.

Following a long career as a forest ecologist in the Pacific Northwest, she now lives in the country outside Corvallis, Oregon, where it’s quiet, there are a lot of birds, and it’s easy to go for walks.

Hosted by F. Douglas Brown

With Poets T’ai Freedom Ford, Angela Peñaredondo, and Luivette Resto
