I'm a bit late on this, but I wanted to send out my thanks to a couple of people who have given me favorable reviews lately.
First, a review of my poem, "Hart Island," which first appeared in ETTT Issue 22, is a part of the article "The Ghostly Verses of the Science Fiction Poetry Association," a review by Michael J. Abolafia in Spectral Realms No. 6. Michael discusses the entire Ghosts issue (edited by Shannon Connor Winward), and had these kind words to say of my poem:
And more recently, my poem "My City of Ruin" in "The Santa Monica Prophesies: A Collaborative Triptych" is reviewed by Charles Payseur of Quick Sip Reviews. This poem was great fun to write, as it was part of a collaboration with Layla Al-Bedawi and Bonnie Jo Stufflebeam, inspired by our trip to the Santa Monica Pier, where we each had our fortunes read by a Zoltar machine.
Reviewers are so important to the field of poetry, and it's so lovely to have my work engaged with in this way. I'm often surprised by the things other people find in my work and love to hear about them. So, thank you!
