Poems in Frostwriting
February 15, 2009
I'm delighted to be able to say that four of my poems appear in Issue 2 of Frostwriting, a relatively new literary journal out of Sweden.
I learned about the journal because one of my old friends from Bennington, William Males, is on the editorial staff. And it's a joy for me to see many dear Bennington names in the poetry section of this issue: poems by my friend and mentor David Lehman, poems by my friend Carolyn Scarbrough ("Hospital Lunch" reminds me very much of my chaplaincy days), and work by Kathy Douglas and Celeste Guzman Mendoza, among others.
I have four poems in the issue: Lunar eclipse, Tzav pantoum, Knowledge, Threshold. The occasion for the lunar eclipse poem is presumably obvious. Longtime readers may recognize the pantoum, which was written as part of my ongoing series of Torah poems. The two other poems are part of a series of poems I've been working on -- I'll have more to say about them, and that series, here in a few weeks, so stay tuned.
Anyway: deep thanks to the editorial staff at Frostwriting for publishing my work! I hope y'all will check out the journal and read the beautiful work included in its pages.
