The Week Goes On/2 Poems Accepted by Verdad!!
Rounding off the most productive week of acceptances in my journey so far, I just received word that two poems will soon be published by Verdad. "As Summer Sinks Over Erlauf Lake" and "Hostel Room on Sofokleous Street" can both be found soon at verdadmagazine.org. The former was composed in a rural area of northern Austria, quite a calming location; the latter in Athens city center, while staying at a tight, nightmarish hostel in 110 degree heat while the noises of the city, mostly motorbikes and stray cats, reminded me the night belongs to more than crickets...but i'm excited they'll be shown side by side, a balance, contradictory experiences...life, no?
