Two New Poems in Inaugural Issue of TIDAL BASIN REVIEW

The Spring 2010 issue of Tidal Basin Review, a publication of Tidal Basin Press, has just been released, and I am pleased to report that two of my new poems, “Father’s Garage” and “For My Sister After Her Surgery,” appear in this inaugural issue of the journal.

Tidal Basin Review is described by its editors as “an electronic literary journal with a print-on-demand option that seeks to amplify the voice of the human experience through art that is intimate, engaging, and audacious. We make every effort to include work that propels the present artistic landscape and to publish the wide spectrum of American voices.” The debut issue includes works by 45 writers and a featured visual artist.

Visitors are urged to examine my pair of new poems and to read the entire premiere issue of Tidal Basin Review, which is free and available online.
