Naugatuck River Review

I’m honored to have a poem included in the latest edition of the Naugatuck River Review. They accepted Flowering Dogwood, a poem I wrote a decade ago, when I was just beginning to take poetry seriously. It’s a true story too.

While everyone knows that good poetry is priceless, for a limited time, nearly eighty pages of “narrative poetry in the tradition of great narrative poets such as Gerald Stern, Philip Levine, or James Wright” can be acquired for just $10, which is $2 off the usual price. You should buy a copy for yourself, while keeping in mind that the gift-giving season is fast approaching. (hint hint)

As a teaser, here are the first few stanzas of Flowering Dogwood. Buy the book to see how it ends.
