Two years after Big Table Publishing was started by Robin Stratton, Boston Literary Magazine began. I have strong positive feelings about Big Table, as they published five of my books so far.
Boston Literary Magazine has been a print journal, an on-line journal and the new awakening is having spotlight features. Today I was featured with Richard Fox, in February 2022's issue. , where each of us were asked three questions.

Do you have a favorite dinosaur?
BLM: Where were you when you heard John Lennon had been killed?
I was in an apartment on College Avenue, in Newark Delaware. I was watching in my room, Patriots-Dolphins, and Cosell announced it. A lot of people got the news from Monday Night Football. My initial reaction was 'who would assassinate a musician?' It was just crazy.
BLM: When people ask "What kind of poetry do you write?" how do you answer?
My poetry is very language, sound, and metaphor based. I write visually, but image wise in the actual writing falls behind in frequency. Language is fun. I love word-play, and double meaning as well as explosive, interesting words themselves....words I'd never use in everyday conversation
