Shearsman, Astropoetica et al.

I was tickled to discover that my leafscape e-mail has a SpamAssassin... and how it took Michi for chainsaw practice (details here).

It censored her naughty message to me after identifying her as:

X-Spam-Level: *****
Content analysis details: (5.9 points, 5.0 required)

Even from the score she received, it's clear that she has a... ahem, problem with length.

Recent Publications/ Acceptance:

• Two poems in Astropoetica (Volume 4.1, Winter 2006):

   Mother Earth on a Starry Couch (read)
   The Astronomer’s Last Nights (read)

• And a poem, Seven Years of Bad Luck in Shearsman. (issue 65 & 66).

• Such a thrill! The Pedestal Magazine has accepted my poem:

Marshal Song Enters the Servants' Quarters
After a Night of Gambling, His Pockets Empty

Very quick turnover rate; response time: one week to one month.

(Michi, when she reads this, will probably snicker about the length... of my title).

My Own Personal Problem with Length:

• Plantarium growth: 0 millimeters.
   Color: green.
   Prognosis: depressing.
