Verse Daily!

Too cool! I'm on Verse Daily today and what a fantastic job they do. Here's the link - Verse Daily

It's for my poem, "Praying to the Patron Saint of Saved Marriages" from 5 a.m., which has become one of my very very favorite literary magazines. They not only have the best poems, but the best quotes in "Quotes without Comment" such as these:

"Our enemies are innovative and resourceful. And so are we. They never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people, and neither do we."
George W. Bush

and

"I was a Republican until they lost their minds"--
basketball star Charles Barkley

My poem is in the Quirky American Issue along with poems from:
Nin Andrews
Alicia Ostriker
Dorothy Barresi
and others...

If you haven't read 5 a.m., I suggest you get your hands on a copy or sign up for a subscription. They have yet to disappoint me. Ed Ochester and Judith Vollmer are the editors and they really do an incredible job of choosing INTERESTING poems! Imagine.
