Poems in The Chimaera

The first issue of The Chimaera, the offspring of Shit Creek Review, has just been delivered. It looks major and feels intimate. I have three poems in it, and a prose piece that started life as a blog post. Rhina P. Espaillat has a really good poem on the subject of home. Alison Brackenbury, whose first book Dreams of Power I read and loved in Singapore, is also here. And poets I first knew from PFFA: Rob Mackenzie, Rik Roots, Anna Evans, and Salli Shepherd. And a poet I first heard on the NYC poetry circuit, but who has now moved to Dublin: Quincy Lehr. And, in a strange return, a poet I knew from Singapore, an expat himself, Chris Mooney-Singh.

Alison Brackenbury, now there is a voice from the past. Her Renaissance sequence about Bess of Hardwick was something remarkable in its day. So, she is still writing!

I remember her horse poems best.
