A poem of mine has been published in the illustrious Comstock Review!! It is a print journal, which you can subscribe to here, with truly excellent poetry. My poem, “Lawnmowing in America,” is written using only the letters in the title, with the additional limitation of not using any letter in a single word more times than it is used in the title, an oulipo-type poem with my own additional restrictions, which I call “strangled alphabet.” The latter description is not mentioned, however, in the magazine, meaning the poem stands on its own merit, not as a mere exercise in linguistic finesse. Sometimes I need restrictions to get my mind to emerge from its box.
