The Written Word

Just received word that my poem “Hill Country Fossils” will appear in an upcoming issue of Southwest Review.  

 And just a couple of weeks ago, I opined thusly about the merits of writing poetry over fiction:

How freeing it would be … to write without the words needing to earn their keep….  How freeing it would be, to write without worry that the race is always to the swift….

Those lilies of the field, they toil not, neither do they spin.

One thought on “The Written Word

  1. Good for you, and why the hell not? Poetry, I mean. Same with blogging–why the hell not? That “earn their keep” stuff distracted me my whole life, and you’re right that it’s freeing to throw it out the window.
