So, there’s this: These are the first 5 pages of a manuscript of 50 poems I have begun to send out to magazines and publishers. They feel like a natural outgrowth of the essays I’ve been writing for this site — another step in trying to see clearly and figure things out. My photos here are awful; Staples did a nice job putting the book (?) together.
I will not be placing any of the poems on the site. Doing so constitutes an act of publication. Once shown here, I could not submit them for consideration elsewhere. If one or more of them is published, you will hear my cry of good cheer in the next county.
