My "Rough Cure" in the 50th Anniversary Hessler Street Fair Anthology

I'm happy to announce that my poem "Rough Cure" was selected as a finalist in the 2019 Hessler Street Fair Poetry Contest and will be published soon in the Fair's 50th anniversary anthology. I don't plan to compete at the final competition reading on May 11th, however (though I'll be there cheering everyone else on), because the ultimate winner has to be available to read at the Fair itself on the first weekend in June and that's when I'll be in Long Island for the Walt Whitman Bicentennial Convention. I'm happy, though, that my poem will be in the book alongside work by so many other fine folks.
