With her poem “How to Stop Your Dog from Howling” Tamara won the Third Prize in the First International WeArtFriends Poetry Tournament in 2018.

How to Stop Your Dog from Howling

Love him the way he knows,
not from the hallway where he sighs
while you make your daily habitations
and gesticulations before a mirror,
but round and cheerfully green.

You can read the winning poem as well as another 4 of Tamara’s poems on Amazon.
