7/23 MN Reads: "Everyday Love" by Peggy Trojan

Jul 23, 2015

It was just like everyday silver or everyday dishes; it wasn't something special you hauled out for company.

That's what Peggy Trojan saw growing up and writes about, in this moving chapbook of poetry about her parents and their "everyday love."

Peggy Trojan's chapbook of poetry, "Everyday Love," was nominated for the Northeastern Minnesota Book Award (NEMBA) in Poetry and is self-published.  All this summer, we'll be bringing you books about the Northland, from the Northland by NEMBA award-winners and nominees.

"My father never gets

the hang of being dead ...

This afternoon, there he was

at the table by the window,

easing his back into the sun,

looking for a cup of coffee

and a cinnamon roll."

~ from "Life After Death"
