My Pushcart-nominated piece, “Traveler,” is still gettin’ some love over at decomP magazinE (in the form of comments). Also, a stranger Tweeted the last line. Not a relative, not a friend, not even a colleague.
This isn’t bragging. This is humility. This is me blushing. This is appreciation for all the hard work that goes into small press publications, on-line and in print. This is a reciprocation of the love for written word that those willing to take a chance on these publications exhibit when they bookmark a journal, leave comments, share what they find with the world via social media.
I know I speak on behalf of heaps of poets when I say thank you, from the bottom of our anatomical and metaphorical hearts, for reading and sharing.
