Always such an honor to be nominated. Thank you Robin Stratton and Big Table Publishing for the nomination, and for publishing many of my books. Although I Never Called You Beautiful does not appear on-line. It is within the pages Best of Timothy Gager: Poems, Essays, and Stories, 2002-2022. It also appears in another secret book, whish is sort of like a secret menu item---and only one of those exists in the world. So, there's that. So very grateful to be nominated for the 18th time.
Maybe #18 will be the charm?
This poem is not published on-line
