New Publication

Way back in the ancient days when I lived in Philadelphia (from birth till about 20 years old), I wrote a poem about the Frankford Elevated subway, with one part for each stop from downtown to the place where I caught the bus to go home.
It was in my first (MA) thesis, and it is the last poem in my book, A Likely Story.
Now it will be published in a Philadelphia journal called The Northern Liberties Review. How ironic! I haven't been in Philly for perhaps 10 years, and am not likely to ever go there again, since my parents are gone.
I'll link to it when the poem is published.

Careful! I find that whenever I declare that I won't go anywhere again, I end up living there!

The only way that will ever happen is if some school there offers me a job in a writing program.
