Hop On Over to Hayden's Ferry

Thanks to the folks at Hayden's Ferry Review for giving me the opportunity to offer a Contributor's Spotlight through their new blog.

...A man walked right up to my father and shook his hand confidently. "General Beasley," he said. My father returned the handshake and said tentatively "Have we met?" The gentleman held up his copy of my book "I feel like I met you in here!" he said.

Every poet curdles inside a bit, witnessing that moment...
