3 Poems in deLuge Journal


I have three poems appearing in deLuge Journal: “Another Bird Rising,” “The Neurotic Dreams September in April,” and “Forced By This Title to Write a Poem in Third Person About Himself, the Poet Considers the Phenomena of Standing Waves, Dreams Involving Long-Lost Cats (Even If He Has Not Had Such a Dream Himself), And the Amazing Durability of Various Forms of Weakness.”

Many thanks to editors Karla Van Vliet and Sue Scavo for including my work in this lovely publication.

My included poem, “Memorial Day,” was written in 2001 or 2002, but languished in a folder for more than a dozen years before I sent it to Eclectica, where it subsequently appeared in the July/August 2014 issue. You never know what’ll happen to/with your poems, but I certainly never expected this. What an honor!
