So today has turned into a big day, which is surprising and for which I am grateful.
Red Flag Poetry Service has released two audio recordings, one of me reading “Camping at Chuzenji-ko” which is one section of the poem, “Road Trip,” in Hanami. The other is the interview Pete at Red Flat Poetry did with me when I recorded the poem. I’m not a polished interviewee yet, so please excuse the dead-air and occasionally rambling answers.
You can find the poem here:
And the interview here:
The poem was this month’s postcard from Red Flag Poetry Service, which was mailed out earlier this month. If you’re not a subscriber–and you should be–the poem will be posted next month. Their website can be found here. It’s really a wonderful thing they do, a quick poem, once a month, in your mailbox. A nice change from bills and flyers.
Potluck Magazine also posted a short story of mine, “Happy Endings,” today here.
This kind of day doesn’t happen often. Or ever. And I’ve been at this long enough to know that I should be really, really grateful. And I am. Thank you to both the Red Flag and Potluck teams for all their kindness and support! You’ve really made my month.
