Vincent Hiscock

Vincent Hiscock grew up in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada and the northern reaches of the Central Valley in northern California. He recently received a MFA in poetry from Cornell University and is currently a PhD student at UC Irvine. His poetry has been featured in The Cincinnati Review, Poetry Northwest, Poet Lore, and Radius, among other journals, as well as in A Poem a Day, an art book, performances at the Institut für Raumexperimente, the Neue Nationalgalerie, and Cornell, and in an installation at Mu.ZEE. He’s thankful for the council & comradeship of his mentor Alice Fulton.

voice in air: afterthought

I / stare at the spider’s manifold legs / & little clawed mandible flickering / with evening’s shine, tittering / corners of death’s bite.
