Poetry. "before sleep the body's geometry brushes against surroundings--suitable to one this key unlocks. postcards from a museum trip, mirror shaped as apple, jar filled with ticket stubs--a loose index. assembled. resemblances match features to transient feeling in gut. turning-tossing. so the first home's memory, deteriorating as the body it informs"--from the text. Born and raised in the Midwest, Heather C. Akerberg resides in Omaha, Nebraska. She has taught English composition, creative writing and bookmaking, as well as cognitive skills. Heather is a freelance writer and sustainable agriculture enthusiast. She has an MFA in Creative Writing from Brown University and a BA from the Jack Kerouac School at Naropa University.
