A new poem in issue nineteen of Really System: http://reallysystem.org/issues/nineteen/right_of_way/ (be sure to check out the whole Summer 2018 edition at http://reallysystem.org/issues/nineteen/ )
“Sweat Bee” is up and waiting (among all sorts of other fine poems) at http://www.youngravensliteraryreview.org/kevin-casey.html
“Convergent Evolution” will appear soon in The Cape Rock, and The Midwest Quarterly has accepted “Hillbilly AC” for publication. “Right of Way” was accepted for publication by Really System, and Contemporary American Voices has chosen to publish “On Goya’s ‘Fight with Cudgels’,” “Ember Garden,” “Guidebook Entry: Inventing Magenta,” “Wood Chip Trailer Sonnet,” and “Church Steeples.”
Also, Ink Pantry will be publishing “Quotidian,” “Dinner at the Kitchen Island,” “Allowance,” and “An Idea of Summer,” and I’ll be doing an interview with editor Deborah Edgeley for that edition, as well.
The latest issue of Boston Accent Lit includes a poem from myself, “The Soul That Sees.” It’s essentially a take-off on Wordsworth’s idea that we “half create” our world, and half perceive it (or, if you like, O’Shaughnessy’s “Ode,” famously quoted by Mr. Willy Wonka: “We are the music makers,/And we are the dreamers of dreams”).
Poet Lore will be publishing “Late Winter Rain,” and Kingdoms in the Wild has accepted “No Need” for a future edition. “Preparing the House for Your Return” and “As Warm As Blood” have been accepted by GASHER, and Dale Wisely’s wonderful Right Hand Pointing will publishing “Good Medicine,” “Any Other Crocus,” “A Tedium,” and “Country Monument” over a couple of upcoming editions.
Peeking Cat has accepted “Bridge Line” for publication, and “Sweat Bee” will appear in Young Ravens. Third Wednesday will print “Eye of Newt,” and “The Honey Thief” in an upcoming issue, and Boston Accent has accepted “The Soul That Sees” for its May edition.
Amy Fusselman, editor of Ohio Edit, was kind enough to write a brief review of my upcoming collection American Lotus, and also to reprint a couple of poems from that collection: http://ohioedit.com/2018/03/07/two-poems-by-kevin-casey-2/
