The Iowa Poetry Association is a non-profit organization with the objective of promoting interest in, and appreciation for better poetry by Iowans. IPA is an affiliate of the Academy of American Poets and the National Federation of State Poetry Societies, Inc.

Fulcher’s poem appears below:

Ruins On Old Vineyard Road
A house of interior strangers;
home of mind-sets and building sites.
Loose design shrouded in thin dust.

The structure transforms.
A window,
entirely purposeful,
slightly accidental.

The rooms resemble a shift,
they may endure
they may disappear
Rooms have come and gone before.

We trace the loose fort where it originated,
speak of symbolic walls,
of casual isolation.
