Well, yet another Ibbetson Street has arrived. You will note the striking front cover – an arresting photograph of an enigmatic spiral staircase from Jennifer Matthews, with splendid graphic touches (note the spectral birds) by Rose Gardina. On the back, long time contributor the accomplished artist Bridget Galway, has a haunting painting of a woman captured in the face of a clock – of all things. Ah! sweet mystery of life! Not only is there fine art, but the usual lineup of fine poetic talent with folks like Jean Valentine, George Kalogeris, Teisha Dawn Twomey, Marge Piercy, Kathleen Spivack, X. J. Kennedy, Diana Der Hovanessian, Victor Howes, Mike Ansara, Rhina P. Espaillat, Maggie Dietz and so many others.
This marks the ninth time I've appeared in Ibbetson. Previously I've been published in #35, #33, #32, #28, #25, #23, #21 and my very first published poem ever #13 (2002)
