Five Poems in the Fall 2017 Issue of Muddy Water Poetry Review

Brookline was known as the hamlet of Muddy River (a river which today makes up part of the Brookline-Boston border) and was considered a part of Boston until the Town of Brookline was independently incorporated in 1705. Its name is derived from the brooks that created the town lines with the former towns of Brighton and Roxbury, which are both now parts of Boston.

Poet Zvi Sesling is the poet laureate of Brookline, Ma and editor of the Muddy River Poetry Review. See how it all connects? Anyway, he asked me to be one of the features for their Fall Issue and included are five of my poems

Day One: The Day After  
(the dope is that it's about a relapse)

Red Barn
(the dope is that it's about the dope we call President) 

Bringing a Monkey to Work
(the dope is that it's about employment in general, and bringing your "pets" to work)

The Truth About Pastels
(the dope is that it's about the color of people's skin)

Still there Are Boxes
(the dope is that it's about a lover moving out)

Also in this issue are
Timothy Gager -- Feature
Wendy Drexler -- Feature
