Temple Cone, of the Class of 1995, has published his second collection of poems. The Broken Meadow, which was published this fall, won the 2010 Old Seventy Press Poetry Series Contest. We wrote about Temple’s first collection, No Loneliness, in 2009.
Three of Temple’s poems have also been nominated for the Pushcart Prize by the magazines in which they were published: “Cleansing,” nominated by Off the Coast; “Offertory,” nominated by Poetry Kanto; and “Oneliness,” nominated by Beloit Poetry Journal
Temple is an associate professor of English at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis.
You can read some of Temple’s poems on his own website, Temple Cone, where he also blogs occasionally about topics ranging from Troy Polamalu’s Hair to Hip-Hop & Homer.
