About three months ago, I found out that I had actually had a poem accepted by a small-press poetry magazine. Well, it’s actually out: The poem is named Memorials, and it appears in the spring issue of Poetica Magazine: Contemporary Jewish Writing.
I’ve only glanced through it, thus far; I think I’ve lost the knack of reading poetry. But the poems in this small volume seem to concentrate on family; on new lovers and young mothers and holiday get-togethers and old people remembering what it was like to be children. Nothing abstract or difficult to absorb. And the cover illustration, by Melanie Lewis, is lovely. I’m glad I was able to contribute to it.
