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.
