Last summer, Isthmus, a literary magazine based in Seattle, put out a call for submissions for a special issue on Politics. I answered with a few poems, envisioning, as did the editors, that the issue would debut early in the administration of our first woman president.
The poem of mine they accepted, "Door to Door," is perhaps a little more poignant than it otherwise would have been. The issue is about much more than electoral politics, though, and what I've read of it so far has been powerful, moving, and thought provoking. I'm thrilled to be part of it.
For information, see Isthmusreview.com , where you can read much of the issue (though not my poem) online for free, or order it (well worth the $8 price, imho).
