21 Stars, Flutter, and a Dead Horse

Blah. I'm running shamelessly late — with e-mail and also blog-wise... haven't yet done my blog-rounds yet. Eek. Suffering some really bad muse days — which means I waste more than half the day bursting my poor brain, pustule-like, for ink.

The amount of mail has been rather —uh— overwhelming, too.

Recent publication:

• The December 2006 issue of Nthposition is now online with poems by Elizabeth Kirschner, Tim Liardet, Dave Lordan, Len Sousa, Rufo Quintavalle, Ryk Mcintyre, Wayne Smith, Marlene Rosen and Carol Jenkins. The weed has four poems here —
On tiles
All perfectly abandoned
About your parrot
A driving student restarts the car
So-called weed is particularly happy that the parrot it stole has found a home. A weed, as everyone knows, can love a parrot like its first drink of the day.

Recent rejection/acceptances:

• Since people might be interested in the response time, Poetry London sent a form letter apology. This is a market that's like way over my drinking experience and grocery list — but it never hurts to try.

• Tickled pinkish that 21 Stars Review wants my Dear Dog/God— poem in their 4th issue. Just gotta love this 'zine! Delicious mix of the bizarre, quirky, raving mad and serious. I'm blissful that my letter has found its place with them.

Flutter accepted three poems for the January 2007 issue: Two Days After Epiphany, Answers to questions and In The Underground. Neat 'zine this — lovely poetry and an announcements page where you can send news of your latest book/chapbook.

• A bit of mixed news here. Good news is that Dead Horse Review (don't you just *love* that name?) wants my poem, A Driving Student Reconstructs the Three-Point Turn for their third issue. Bad news is that it will be their last. Boooohooo! I just enjoy this 'zine like a swimming pool and am rather sad it's going on hiatus. Here's to hoping it won't be for a long time.

Based on their website, they seem to be still accepting work. I think it was this submission note that I found so irresistible:
Kindly title your email "submission" and the response e-mail will most probably be titled "dominance."
