Republication of "Ken Burns Effect" (accepted by Harbinger Asylum) and "Summer maid" (forthcoming in a Carnival Literary Magazine print anthology of its best poems) and "Breathing snow" and "This being America, there were patriots present" (accepted by Poetry Pacific) is also under way.

Four poems -- "After the falls" and "Half lithe," published by Prole Press in the U.K., "Full of yourself" and "Summer hymn," published by Red River Review -- are now available in 2016 and 2017 below as the "no-posting time period" required by the journals has passed.

Good bets from 2016 include "Past tents," "Light found to have weight," "Vacuuming around the dead," "War memorial" "Homage," "Silenced night" and "Revolutions."

From 2015, try "Mapping water," "Out of Missoula" and "Tent not taken." 

From prior years, choose "Breathing snow," "Chicken," "Ken Burns effect," "300 streams of memory," "At the Nez Perce camp with Spirit Woman," "Vacuuming your cat," "Destined to rhyme," "Seduced by metaphor,"  "Ruling out indictment," "Angle of repose" and even Pilgrim's first poem, "The woods near our home."

One poem -- published by Black Fox Literary Magazine -- cannot be available here for a time (under publication rules specified by the journal). Check for that poem here later!
