New work in Copper Nickel and Other Thoughts

I'm grateful to have received my contributor's copy of Copper Nickel Issue 16.

I'm with some great company: Ruth Kocher, Gary L. McDowell, Keith Montesano, Paisley Rekdal, Steven Schroeder, Christian Teresi . . . Thrilled!

Spent the day working at my desk--I managed to write my review/endorsement for The Lit Pub.

I printed out a copy of Post ____________Subject, which came out to a whopping 92 pages. I also pieced together the "Nocturnes" manuscript which wound up being around 57 pages after I included the "Camera" poems. The "Camera" poems feel clumsy in the manuscript at the moment, and I'm not sure what I need to do to ease them in a bit more gracefully.

I also managed to write the poem you see below (at least for now).

I also found the time to send off two poetry submissions. I need to get on top of my submissions because the work's starting to pile up.

What I didn't do: I didn't clean the house. I didn't go to the gym. I didn't leave the house.

Got a call from the bank today. We're in the process of applying for a construction loan. Unfortunately we're not approved for the amount we'll need to build a garage, so there's one bummer that happened. We SO need a garage. Our kids are pushing us out of our house . . .

Raining. Raining heavily.
