I Was Dead, a poem

by janeeatonhamilton

I got the lovely litmag ‘Poem, International English Language Quarterly,’ today from England.  My poem “I Was Dead” appears in the section “Chosen by Marilyn Hacker.”  I’m kinda stoked.  It’s a kick for me, I have to admit.  I wrote “I Was Dead” during NaPoMo this spring, so this is double the pleasure for me, it being new and all.  The poem talks about a time when I was two and lost and was given up for dead.
