they might sell more hard copies if they didn't do this

Whenever a new issue of Ploughshares comes out, they put the previous issue, pretty much in its entirity, up on the website. I always look forward to that. I've read about half the poems, though, and so far found them a bit yawny. But I really liked this one. Despite the rather unpromising first two lines, it delighted me.

Gosh, thanks for this link.

I like Bob Hicok's hysterectomy poem an awful lot.

I haven't gotten to his yet. He never seems to fail, though.

I really enjoyed your poem "From Train 21" in Frigg, and I enjoy your blog "The Rain in my Purse." Consequently, I was wondering if you’d be interested in submitting to LITSNACK, a literary magazine/blog intended to be an in between meal treat for people who want a little taste of literature without ruining their dinner. The magazine can be found at

I am currently accepting short poetry (1-35 lines) and microfiction (50-500 words). Please send submissions to I would prefer if you embedded the submission in the body of the e-mail, please, as attachments worry me!

I eagerly look forward to your submission.

Thank you.


Dan Tricarico, editor

Hi Daniel -
That's really nice of you to invite me, and I'm glad you liked Train 21. I'm sure I won't be the only one checking out your site.
