Delighted to have a poem included in the new release from Better Than Starbucks (May 2018 Vol. III No. V; print & online)! Many thanks to the editors for featuring “to be is to bleed away“. Another poem that takes root in Cuba and draws crosses under the moving shadows of José Marti & Ismaelillo.

Pleased to be featured again at the fabulous Duane’s Poe Tree (April 23, 2018)! My sincere thanks to Duane Vorhees for publishing my poem “one illusion against another foretells a darkness” and his commentary about the primary contextual field of the poem in the accompanying note. And he does it so often! I wonder how! No wonder his site won the International Reuel Literature Prize for 2017 under the category of “Best Blog for 2017″ for supporting the works of the poets in the literary world.
