End of the Summer Run

The Barefoot Muse accepted “Bodhi Day,” a rondeau I dedicated to the memory of my journalistic doppelganger, Helga Tilton. It was written on the day of her memorial service last Dec. 8th. There was something special about the day, and once I got to the slightly skeptical turn at the end of a poem celebrating the Eastern mystical, I felt I was tuned in to my friend.

The featured poet in this issue of The Barefoot Muse is Ray Pospisil, another journalist friend I (we) lost recently.

Also in the issue, editor Anna Evans reviews my chapbook, Aquinas Flinched, as well as Austin MacRea’s Graceways and Alan Wickes’ Prospero’s Breakfast. All three are published by Modern Metrics.
