As hoped, summer has brought new poems along with it, and I’ve managed to read and to send work out, even though it feels like I’ve had to fight for every minute.
I’m happy to say that new poems are coming out in Diode, Grimoire, and the debut issue of Gold Wake Live. I’ve got a bunch of poems simmering out there at various journals, too.
Once I got over the fear of submitting (not sure how or why that developed) it became so much easier to get the packets out.
This summer I’ve seen several lakes. Sometimes new poems and lakes are all that you can hope for in a summer.
