My poem about the aftermath of last year’s tainted “election” has been accepted and published in one fell swoop by Literary Yard. You can find it here. Literary Yard has recently been “ranked among the top 100 best Literary [sic] blogs on the planet” by Feedspot.com.
This is not my favorite poem I have ever written. I think it is too literal. But my husband really likes it, so maybe I am wrong. Anyway, I couldn’t think of a way of changing it because, as he says, it conveys how I felt and what it was like right afterwards–hence the title, “How things are now.” As usual, I invite you to read it and let me know what you think.
