This weekend...after many postponements due to thunderstorms, I finally drove to Charlottesville, had some oysters (and local-brewed porter--god, I miss the cheap beer prices in CVille), woke up at the crack o'dawn Sunday and went up in a hot air balloon. It was lovely. Pictures to come. Back on the ground...last week I received a trio of magazine contributor's copies. Check it out:
-two poems in Hayden's Ferry Review (with an issue theme of "The Grotesque");
-two poems in Hotel Amerika (the issue actually opens, page 1, with a poem of mine);
-and a poem in the June issue of The Believer (I'm in the same issue as...Zadie Smith! Whoa.)
Thanks to the editors for putting me in such a fine company of authors--these are all killer magazines. Really good writing, beautifully produced. I'm giddy.
Update--and my poem "The Natives Are Restless," read by Steve Mueske, is now up at Linebreak!
