The Tipton Poetry Journal just published my poem, “Ode to Billy Collins,” in its Fall 2018 edition. Thanks to the Editors Barry Harris and Natalie McCann for giving “Billy” a home.
The poem is only a slightly tongue-in-cheek homage to one of my favorite poets, whose plain-spoken verse both belies and underscores the wit and intelligence with which he writes about the profound in the daily, and the daily in the profound. Even if you proudly proclaim “I don’t read poetry!” you should check out his work. Here is one of his most recent: Aimless Love: New and Selected Poems.
For all us writers, here’s to a 2019 filled with an abundance of pages and publications.
