The Green Light: Valentine’s Day 2020

There’s nothing like lush, spring green popping up on Valentine’s Day.  It gives me a fresh outlook on the day, regardless of snow and rain and winter temps outside.  So you can imagine the delight of reading the Green Light’s Valentine’s Day 2020 Collection.  I’m happy they included my “Palmistry of Reading” in this collection.  It is an older poem, but one I’m happy to see land on a heartfelt page.  Happy [late] Valentine’s Day!

I’ll confess, I’m not much of a cook.  Lately, I’ve been more into setting out boards of cheese, crackers, fruits and veggies for the sole reason that chopping is easier than cooking.  But there are some things yet I love to make, once I put my mind to it.  And there are even some things I make that end up in my poetry, like crepes and Dutch fry baby.

I am over the moon to have my poem “How to Cook a Moon” appear in the pages of Gnashing Teeth Publishing‘s first anthology, Heat the Grease, We’re Frying Up Some Poetry.  The cover is this delightful array of words and mixed media art.

I look forward to watching where this publication lands in a year in terms of submission calls, chapbooks and hopefully another round of anthology.
