Exercise Bowler Publication

Exercise Bowler has accepted my poem "The Torch" for publication in their Spring 2011 issue due out in March! "The Torch" begins with a plea to Kabir, the great Persian poet, to:

Tell me just enough of the truth
that I continue battling up the mountain,
just enough and no more

water, so I still thirst,
love, so I still desire,

shadow, so I still weep.

Exercise Bowler: The name of a 1946 performance at the Arts Theatre in London about Army life in World War 2 and the harsh realities the soldiers face upon returning home.
