Four and Twenty of the Week, November 24

Northern New Mexico
by Jonette Kievit

Nothing replicates green chilies roasting
in fall air, conjuring a primal spell—
mystery of stars, adobe, Hispanic words.

Johnette Kievit’s poem “San Gimignano” is featured in the November/December 2008 of Four and Twenty.

    I can smell the peppers and feel the mystery you evoke. Very nice.
