Leveler

Honored that the editors of Leveler have selected my poem “The peony” for publication. Each poem they choose is featured for a week along with the editors’ comments in a section they call levelheaded. The poet rarely gets to hear what the editors are thinking, so this is a bonus, to say nothing of the considerable extra effort undertaken. Thank you, Leveler!

Clade Song

Very pleased that Tim Kahl and Joshua McKinney have published two of my poems in issue 9 of Clade Song: Asteroidea and Collocation. As a bonus, Clade Song offers poem-specific related links when you click on the animals in the sidebars. Such links are provided for each poem in the issue — quite a demonstration of above-and-beyond commitment by the editors!

Here’s Wikipedia on clade: A clade, also known as monophyletic group, is a group of organisms that consists of a common ancestor and all its lineal descendants, and represents a single “branch” on the “tree of life.”

In fact, I have been writing about a scarecrow, and here’s the poem, published in Issue 4 of Rockvale Review, with my gratitude to Sandy Coomer and the RR team.
