Autumn House Journal promises publication of work that “lingers and haunts…of abandonment, decay, everyday magic, fairy tales, ghosts, nature, paranormal, relationships, solitude, and anything located deep in-between the cracks.” I am grateful to editor Sandy Benitez for including “Beckon” in its fold. I am guessing this poem falls under everyday magic. I look forward to perusing the work gathered here.
