The Piker Press will publish three more of my poems.

I do realize that publication announcements are the last thing on anyone’s mind right now, given what is going on in our country.  (It is still our country, isn’t it?)

But I’d be remiss if I didn’t thank Sand Pilarski over at The Piker Press for accepting three more of my poems.  The online magazine will publish “Bumblebee” on August 24, “prayer upon an empty hilltop” on September 14, and “Contagion Is a Despot Poet” on October 19.

Stay safe, my friends.

It is times like this when I like to remember one of my favorite quotes:

There are those who will say that the liberation of humanity, the freedom of man and mind, is nothing but a dream.

They are right. It is the American Dream.

— Archibald MacLeish

 

 

 

“The American Dream.”

“There are those will say that the liberation of humanity, the freedom of man and mind are nothing but a dream. They are right. It is the American Dream.”

—  Archibald MacLeish

I hope that all my friends are having a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend.  Please take a moment to remember the reason for tomorrow’s holiday — the good men and women who laid down their lives for our safety and freedoms.  Godspeed and thank you to lost American soldiers.
