the wind is my little cape

Last week Front Porch Journal accepted my poem Naked, Come Shivering for their December issue. It’s a cento using lines from 20th century French poetry. The title comes from a poem by Roger Giroux, which begins with the same words.

Nthposition also accepted three poems – Cape, Equestrian and Excuse me while I wring this long swim out of my hair – for their next issue, due out in about three months.

I feel really glad for all those poems, like I’ve placed my children in a good school.
