Many thanks to poet and editor Christopher Martin for including two of my poems in the latest issue of Flycatcher .
According to their mission statement, “Flycatcher strives to explore what it means—or what it might mean—to be native to this earth and its particular places. ”
Both of my poems are set in the South.
- Learning to Pray in Spanish takes place along the Chattahoochee River in suburban Atlanta.
- Folly Beach, a seaside town near Charleston, SC, is a meditation about being on the beach on a sunny, beautiful day yet still not at peace.
This issue is full of lovely poems and is well worth reading. Several of my poetry friends have work included:
- Save One and These Fatals by Cheryl Stiles,
- Because the Guy in the Red Pickup Ran Over the Goose on Purpose and Park by Tania Rochelle,
- These Clothes Smell Like Smoke by Rupert Fike.
- Stoneroller in the Hiawassee by Christopher Martin.
