Day 14: "How Killer Blue Irises Spread" by Kelli Russell Agodon

For Day 14 of 30 Days of The Five-Two, another poem of transgression.

In "How Killer Blue Irises Spread" from The Atlantic, Seattle poet Kelli Russell Agodon imbues flowers with evil intent.

I heard of Kelli through, The Daily Poet, her book of 365 poetry prompts written with Martha Silano.

Kelli and Annette Spaulding-Convy also founded Two Sylvias Press, independent publisher of The Daily Poet, PR for Poets, and other poetry-themed products, and sponsor of a chapbook contest—all worth checking out.
