Me? A Published Poet?

Yeah, okay, it's not The New Yorker, but it's a start.

The Swarthmore Literary Review. Scroll down to "The Kimono." That's mine.

  2. Jen: Thanks! You know, I think it's all about luck. For instance, this is the first issue of Swarthmore Literary Review, so I wonder if that was my lucky break. And thank you! :)

  3. Congratulations!

    "her trousseau now hangs.
    Dead butterfly pinned
    to a scientist's wall."

    That is incredibly beautiful.

  5. Rachel: Thanks! I really liked that stanza too.

    Abz: And thank you too! I actually got the idea from the kimono hanging on my wall (I collect them). Inspiration comes from the strangest places.
