Just a note to mention that I was a finalist for this year’s Rattle Poetry Prize–here’s a link. That means my poem is eligible for the Reader’s Choice Award–subscribers can vote for their favorite of the finalists, and the poem that receives the most votes will bring to its writer not only glory and fame, but also $1000. Long live democracy! Vote for me, America!
Seriously, I am honored to be in the good company of my fellow finalists and winner Roberto Ascalon–thanks to Rattle for continuing to support poetry.
