The Piker Press features “Turning 41”

Hey, gang! I’m honored today to see The Piker Press publish another poem of mine — “Turning 41.” I wrote this poem last year!! Thanks as always to Editor Sand Pilarski for allowing me to share my voice at this wonderful online lit mag.

[Update: okay … I wrote this poem many years ago, not last year, because 41 was a while back. Whatever.]



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
