Deep thanks to Corey Cook, editor of Red Eft Review, for publishing my poem
“On Sunday Morning.”
Red Eft Review is an online publication dedicated to accessible poetry. My goal is to post a poem a day. In the meantime, poems will be posted as they are accepted.” — Corey Cook
Ospreys carrying dinner.
Fried shrimp picnics on the banks of a bayou.
Box turtles crossing the yard.
Tree frogs on the window pane.
Corn snakes in the squash.
The size of grasshoppers.
How tall my basil grows.
The end of summer.
And the Make America Green Again
bumper sticker I saw yesterday
on a car whose driver I’d pay to meet.
Many thanks to the editorial team at Five on the Fifth for publishing my essay, “
Alabama, One Year Later.” Five on the Fifth is an online journal that publishes five short pieces on the fifth of every month.
