The editors of the journal Do Not Look At The Sun have a knack for coming up with quirky and interesting themes for their issues. The theme for the Spring 2012 issue is "Paper Plane Poems." Dylan, Kathy, and I helped with distribution by flying paper plane poems at the Inner Harbor in Baltimore. It was a great day for it-- slight breeze, lots of people milling about prior to the Orioles-Phillies baseball game. Lots of baseball fans, but how many also enjoy poetry? Not sure, but one Phillies fan helped fold and fly a poem.
This site is a place to store my poems and other thoughts about poems. Think of it as a digital, on-line file cabinet to which the world has access. Or, a virtual poetry reading. Posting here is not intended to be self-publishing. Some of my poems have been published in various on-line and print journals: Commonthought Magazine, Kumquat Poetry, Free State Review, Symmetry Pebbles, Loch Raven Review, Dead Beats Literary Blog, The Copperfield Review, Do Not Look at the Sun, Poetry Quarterly, Three Line Poetry, the Little Patuxent Review, You Are Here: the Journal of Creative Geography, and the Beatnik.
