Dead Letter Radio Features “March Midnight Window”

I’m honored to share here that several of my poems have been selected by the Dead Letter Radio podcast!  “March Midnight Window” was the first last night to be read and interpreted by host Taize Jones, who brings a relatable and sublimely empathetic voice to his program.  My poem is the sixth and last piece to be read on Episode 10, “Eisegesis” (at about the 18:02 mark).

You can listen to the entire episode right here.  Dead Letter Radio is also available on Spotify, Apple Podcasts and over at Listen Notes.

I really recommend that you check out Taize’s show.  It’s a truly unique online venue — giving listeners the feel that they are reacting to poems with a trusted friend.  (I’ll bet that its style of presentation successfully engages many new readers of poetry.)

Thanks again, Taize!



My poem for a late March night.

I wrote this four years ago, during another insomniac March.

“March Midnight Window,” by Eric Robert Nolan

Cold glass.
One white palm against
A March midnight window.
The hour is struck.
In blackness an indistinct
Day is made another.

Clouds seclude the moon.
To those outside,
The lithe, pale “L” of my hand may be
An alabaster letter,
A sign to other sleepless.
Each, in eisegesis,
Divines its meaning in
Their own midnight hearts —
Whether love or loss I do not know.
