Poem at Sanctuary’s Poetry Corner


Fellow poet Mare Leonard invited me to share a poem for her newly instituted Poetry Corner of Sanctuary Magazine. I was honored and delighted to contribute to this new space where in Mare’s words, one can “share a taste of poems that will make you think, laugh or wonder.” I share her concern about the readership of poetry and highly recommend catching her reading in the Hudson Valley in the near future.

The poem published is from my unpublished full-length manuscript, Hugh Melody and other poems.
