I feel honored to see my poem “Riddles for my Father” in the inaugural issue of The Rattling Wall (Spring 2011), flanked by Don Winslow‘s funny, hipsteresque story “Colfax” (about a book tour that ends “in a store on Colfax Avenue in Denver”—I’m guessing The Tattered Cover) and three new poems by Matthew Zapruder, one of which (“Poem for England”) includes these affecting lines:
let us turn back to the book
now we are just touching its pages
everyone in it died a long time ago
trying to get home
Thanks to Founding Editor Michelle Meyering, who is also Director of Programs and Events at PEN Center USA, for inviting me to the party.
