I live about a half mile from the train. The tracks follow the long curve of Bellingham Bay and the train sounds its horn repeatedly along the way, always the same four blasts, long long short long. I wrote a little poem about it and D.W. Adams, who likes trains, included it in today’s edition of Train: a poetry journal.

Apocalypse Confidential

Apocalypse Confidential, a web magazine of “edgy extrapolations, fringe fascinations, occult obsessions, risky ruminations, and aberrant associations,” has found five of my visual poems worthy of inclusion in that list. I’m thrilled and would be even more pleased if you’d visit the page and click Like, near the bottom, below the images.
