Do Not Look at the Sun

The Spring 2011 issue of Do Not Look at the Sun is now available.  This issue includes my poem "Thoughts While Viewing Van Gogh's 'Fishing Boats on the Beach at Les Saintes Maries-de-la-Mer'." 

Issue #5 is titled "Post Cards from Paris."  From the website:  "Every poem/ fragment/ photo/ painting that was selected for this issue was made into a postcard. It was then copied, printed and posted to people and places around the world. Some addresses were taken from mail-art mailing lists, others from postcard projects such as postcrossing (, some were sent to subscribers of DNLATS, others to those suggested by the contributors themselves. They were also hand delivered to hundreds of random mailboxes throughout Paris and London."

The idea of printing poems on postcards and mailing them to random locations around the world was really appealing to me.  I mean, if you can't make money off poetry, you should at least have fun.  Check out the issue, purchase a copy, and keep innovative journals like this in business.
