Dear Readers I am so happy to announce the publication of my poem ” Heading That Way”
In Lummox #3 2014. You can find that publication at http://www.lummoxpress.com and order a copy, which I hope you will as it has so very much to offer.
I am very grateful to be included in this publication. There are many wonderful writers in this tome of 170 poets which includes interviews with Grace Cavalieri,John Macker, Doug Holder, Rick Smith and Daniel MCGinn. There are lots of photos and some cartoons. This is a publication to keep at your bedside table, take with you on a long trip or to the islands this winter.
You will find my poem on page 69 and attributed to Susan Topping (Silver) rather than my usual nome de plume Sue Silver. This due to a misunderstanding with the editor RD as it is Susan Topping who pays the bills.
Yes it is time I officially changed my name. Is that hard to do? I will soon find out…
These days I am living between Annapolis, MD and Shepherdstown and I am really enjoying Annapolis. What an interesting town, filled with interesting and wonderful people just like Shepherdstown in so many ways, but of course so much larger.
I am not going to put my poem here just yet. Please support Lummox by buying a copy if you can.
Here’s a poem by Grace Cavalieri:
After Taking The Train To Martinsburg
Did you think that I could
Come to the mountains
Where it is raining
Without finding something to praise,
Only this time it is a dream
Shimmering like the new green
Out every window,
The remembrance of traveling
When young, feeling that
Something was needed but finding
The porches seemed small
From a distance,
Then left with nothing in particular
Your cheek next to mine
And how I’d like to show you
The mourning doves building
Their nest in the crook
Of that far tree
Stick by stick by stick
As if it will last forever.
