Diagram and Half-Drunk Muse

Wheeeee! My poem, first there was chloroform is now up in Diagram 6.2.

Kristy Bowen, who's a Diagram regular by now, also has a terrific poem in this issue: Bebe Marie. Incidently, she also received the Adroitly Placed Word Award. I'm quite a fan and can't wait to get her book, the fever almanac in November when it's scheduled to come out.

I'm also rainbow-thrilled to be sharing space with the likes of Christopher Barnes, Tiffany Noelle Fung, Ricky Garni, Jonathan Hayes, Rebecca Kiernan, M, Kevin Miller, Cynthia Polutanovich, Kris Saknussemm, Cheryl Snell, and Russell Streurin in the Spring 2006 issue Half-Drunk Muse.

Interesting editorial, too about hate mail. Made me go down on my knees to thank myself that I'm no longer an editor. Poets can be scary people... which is probaby why they've put my husband on medication. Hee.

Hi -
I like both of them, but the "frog song" in the poem at Diagram is wonderful. Popsong, birdsong, singsong, dogsong, frogsong.
