April Foolery

April Foolery

Each National Poetry Month (April!) I take on the PAD (Poem a Day) Challenge using the prompts supplied by Robert Lee Brewer of Writers Digest’s Poetic Asides. If you want to read my posted poems, contact me via Facebook (ensures I know you) and I’ll give you the password. I will not post my drafts “live” here since that leads to prior publication troubles with journals. Over all, the process has been successful for me. Later versions of drafts written by me for the PAD Challenge have appeared in Menacing Hedge, Weave, NEAT, and TAB: The Journal of Poetry and Poetics. (more…)

New this month in The Lake

New this month in The Lake

My poem, My Life History as a Series of Flat Tires is in the April issue of The Lake. I’m very happy about this since it is a pantoum and I enjoyed writing in that form. It’s also one of my El Dorado poems from my manuscript centered on that little oil town.
