Halfway Down the Stairs

I think a poet’s four-leaf clover might well be akin to publishing a poem on the 1st of March.  Thank you to Halfway Down the Stairs for publishing “Emily’s To-Do List,” a poem I wrote on Emily Dickinson’s birthday.  It was actually written to serve as an example of a list poem for my high school students in Creative Writing, but I tinkered enough with it that it hopped into my submissions folder and out it went to to the world.  I’m happy that it found its home in this quarterly journal devoted to “Milestones.”
