Thank you to Poetry Editor Ashley Blake for including “Katie’s Cabin” in this handbound publication, Cartography. Inside, a plethora of directional, wayfaring writings. I love their note just inside a page or two:
If we could candy words, we’d eat them to bellyaches every afternoon. We carry journals and collect chapbooks like Smaug ripping through a gold-sequin disco. If we’re lucky enough to leave something behind that enriches the dialogue of writerly types around the world, so much the better. Send us your stuff — we’ll only hoard it for a little while.
