I am writing the daily poems but am not putting all of them here, as they are pretty personal. Today’s not as much.
The crows are circling
in the rain, misted black
against the flat sky.
Their dot eyes see
creatures that will cash
out their pine forest.
The squirrels hide,
swirling up the tree,
the green is no cover.
The swallowing sounds
of paper bending and slanting
become a distortion
of ink, a digestive act
I’ve very pleased to be included in Two Cities Review with my poem Dusk. I love that poem, and am happy it’s found a home. Go check out all the poets in the issue. Great stuff.
I’m very pleased to have three poems in tiny poetry: macropoetics. Here. Really cool stuff going on there and the editors could not have been more welcoming. Check them out for sure.
Blogger has become unusable. Sad. Goodbye Page of Woe Absolved, hello Page of Woe Absolved 2.
I opened up my WP blog, here, which I’ve had for years. Will be posting there from now on.
Never name a character Lloyd because for every time you type that name, you will type every variation but the correct spelling. I’ve never backspaced so much in my life.
We went to the Bay area this summer and we found this turret in the Marin Headlands. I knew I had to be inspired by this place, because it was super cool. I finally figured out how to use in it a story I’ve been stuck on for like two years. Score.
Well, hello there.
I’ve been busy this summer sending out submissions, writing a query letter, and organizing the upcoming poetry club at the elementary school I work at. And so many revisions. On so many things. Plus more on the newer-ish novel.
I’ve got four submissions out right now, a slew of poems which would be um… ::counts:: 10, and a short story. I just hope that the eventual rejection letters don’t all come on the same day. That would be kind. Of no one’s doing though but mine. Heh.
So query letters. They are a thing that may need more revision than the actual novel. Which also still needs some cleaning up, but I decided years ago that it would be a forever project. So I don’t worry.
I’m also contemplating in a very small way, asking people to read it. Can you imagine the gall in that!? LOL Only a very tiny part of me feels that way.
Thanks for reading!
