Two Poems in The Centrifugal Eye Anniversary Issue

image
The tenth Anniversary, and for now also the final, issue of The Centrifugal Eye is live with two of my poems. Themed “A Celebration of Poets,” all poems are written in the manner of or in tribute to other poets. Mine are in the manner of William Shakespeare (sonnet: “Double Helix”) and Agha Shahid Ali (ghazal: “East-West Highway”). It’s a beautifully done journal available online at the website, or in PDF or print. A huge thanks to Eve Hanninen and the TCE staff for a spectacular issue!

Angle 8 Live!

Does it get any better than this? My poem “Epithalamion” is the final poem in the new issue of Angle Poetry which just went live. It’s a fabulous issue with many of the very best poets contributing, so it is truly exciting to be in it.

Note there is also an ekphrastic supplement with its own Harry Potter secret link about halfway through, which will lead you to even more delights, including a selection from an illustrated bestiary. Oh, those modern beasts! If you love poetry, you will love this!
