Publication Notice: “school shooter” to appear in the Peeking Cat Anthology 2018.

I’m quite happy to share here today that a poem of mine will be featured in the Peeking Cat Anthology 2018.  Its title is “school shooter,” and it appeared here at the blog back in May.  This will be the fifth time my creative work has been published in an anthology.

Thank you, Peeking Cat Poetry Magazine Editor Sam Rose, for selecting the piece for inclusion.  The Peeking Cat Anthologies are always beautifully put together, and I’m honored to see my work appear alongside so many talented contributors from around the world.

The anthology is scheduled for release in October.  I’ll post ordering information when it becomes available.

I hope you all are enjoying a wonderful holiday weekend!

Here, Kitty, Kitty.

It’s the quick November dark that descends annually, silently on us like a vast black cat – just after we turn our clocks back for daylight savings time.

I’ll be greeting the newly early dark tonight by relaxing with Issue 8 of Peeking Cat Poetry Magazine.  I’m going to revisit two poems that I especially like: Scott Thomas Outlar’s “Sucking Vapors” and Erren Geraud Kelly’s “Coffeehouse Poem #43.”
