Glass

The new issue of Glass: A Journal of Poetry is here, and I have a poem in it!

So does Sandy Longhorn, a poet and blogger I admire, and Garth Pavell, whose work I found and enjoyed in Leveler. 

And so many more! What an honor, what a thrill! This is a lovely online journal, and be sure to see the cover image of a house! Many thanks to editors Holly Burnside and Anthony Frame.

Thanks also to Mogens Engelund for this image of a window in Sweden (1742) with the glassblower's mark in the center. (Like a belly button. And this window is the Adam and/or Eve of glass production.) And thanks to Wikipedia for information on glass and windows. As my Glass contributor bio reveals, I've had a glass collection since seeing the play Glass Menagerie as a child.

I love glass, and I respect transparency.

Your poem has the right rhythm for the mass transit night observer. I'm looking forward to some late subway rides observing the human community on the platforms in the stations.

Thanks, Nancy! Happy public transporting!

Mogens Engelund, who likes to be emailed when people share his image, responded! He is glad to see the window here and likes the poem! Yay!

Lovely poems, both of you! I confess that last nigyht I couldn't find them, because I missed the whole right hand column!

Kathleen, you remind me that so much of our observation of each other is actually benign.

Sandy, this thought about what may be written under the surface of things by some poet fascinates me.

Kathleen said...
