New Poem by Elizabeth Hazen “Panic Attack” Lands in Failbetter
A new poem by Maryland standout Elizabeth Hazen has been published in the 62nd volume of Failbetter literary journal. The poem, titled "Panic Attack," is dark and violent featuring images of fire, anxiety, and this evocative extended metaphor which crawls under the author's skin,
with curled fingernails; a gorgon, green
and merciless; a girl with a loaded gun
trapped inside a woman with her tongue
