Dr. Friesenhahn publishes two poems

Dr. Jacob Friesenhahn, Visiting Assistant Professor of Religious Studies, recently published two poems that take inspiration from the beauty of butterflies. The first poem was published in Canary by Hip Pocket Press on Dec. 21, 2022. This poem is titled “oyamel” and is about the monarch butterflies’ migration to the Oyamel fir forests of central Mexico. The second poem was published in Burrow by Old Water Rat Publishing on Feb. 1, 2023. This poem is titled “the painted lady.” The speaker finds relief from worry through the contemplation of a butterfly’s experience of the world.
