November Poetry: “Self-Portrait with Steve Prefontaine” by Christian Detisch

Curated as part of the Adoptee Poetry Folio by Guest Editor Marci Calabretta Cancio-Bello

This November, to recognize and honor National Adoption Awareness Month, I've invited adoptee poet Marci Calabretta Cancio-Bello to curate a folio of poems by 10 Asian American adoptees. This page features Christian Detisch's “Self-Portrait with Steve Prefontaine." I invite you to take a moment to read her moving introduction to the folio here, as well as the other nine poems in this collection.
