October Fence

October begins with beauty!--blue sky, sunshine, breeze, the sweet scent of mown grass. And plenty of good news. And a bit of eeriness.

Nick McRae is the new poet up at Escape Into Life today, with eerie and wonderful art by Craig Hunter Parker. McRae's poems rhyme!

Sweet (as they say)! I have a poem in a new anthology: All of Us: Sweet: The First Five Years. I was very lucky to be among the poets in the first five years of Sweet, "a literary confection." The online magazine is here, and the anthology is here. And later in the year, I'll be in the Arsenic Lobster anthology, also sweet, with a touch of poison.

And this morning I was in the cemetery, rehearsing for this, the annual Evergreen Cemetery Walk presented by the McLean County Museum of History and Illinois Voices Theatre. I'll be there all week, as Mary Gridley, who did not get along all that well with her husband, Asahel Gridley, when he'd been drinking....
