Two Poems ("It Happens in Spring"/"Covid Fears") Published In "Constellations V. 11: Redirections"

 

      Pleased to end the year with a publication in the anthology put out by Nina Rubinstein Alonso. Two poems written in 2021 "It Happens in Spring," about the phenomena regarding the increase in suicide when things begin to bloom. The second "Covid Fears," is obvious from it's title. The timing is perfect as currently I'm isolated for ten days because of an exposure. I've not tested yet, and I feel fine, but will not be exposing others.






Below the pictures of my work are the full list of contributors, and I've included the people I know or met in red! I'd include a link how to purchase, but if you don't know how to buy a book on-line by now....
