More poems find a home

Filed under: General — Neil Aitken @ 11:55 pm

Checking my email this weekend I discovered that Avatar Review has accepted three of my poems for publication. I’ll post a link when their issue is up (expected in May). Till then, I’ll just tease you with the titles: “Considering Photography,” “To the Street Musician,” and “Seeking Shelter at -50″ and a few lines from one of them:

from “Seeking Shelter at -50″


Outside the thin wooden walls,
the wind-driven branches tapped
like blind men or perhaps
a prisoner in solitary
testing the depth of his world.

    Congratulations, but not too surprising there! Just want to suggest that your UC Riverside program submit an AWP proposal? The deadline is May 1, the link to the form is http://www.awpwriter.org/conference/2007proposal.htm.
