I discovered this morning that The Roanoke Times published my latest letter to the editor; it appeared on November 21. (This was my letter about drawing comparisons between the January 6th attack on the Capitol and protests by Black Lives Matter.)
You can find it right here.
Thanks, as always, to the editorial staff of The Roanoke Times for the opportunity to share my point of view with my neighbors.
I SWEAR to you, I keep stumbling over these “I am not a robot” tests.
I know I’m not a replicant because I don’t have any superhuman powers. (I keep checking.)
I am so honored today that The Piker Press published my prose love poem, “Her Smile Was Silver Jupiter.” You can find it at the link below.
Thanks, as always, to Managing Editor Sand Pilarski for allowing me to share my voice at The Piker Press!
“Her Smile Was Silver Jupiter”
“A Roanoke Thanksgiving”
I am thankful for
fine friends, gracious neighbors, and presently forgotten adversaries,
the smell of smoke outside, its rich and deep and ageless burning notes that sound upon the palette,
the hills under all my days, which pluck up my breath,
all the countless “hellos” their slopes will yield,
the mountains’ incandescence in this cooling season,
the colors now igniting their high and wooded perches,
this new home, this Old South,
this ranging, easy vale of firming winds and firm tradition,
its gentle people, and their surprising hearts —
this fair, far Star City.
~ Eric Robert Nolan, Thanksgiving 2019
