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.
