“Kayaking on Lady Bird Lake” Is Up at Hotazel Review

I am excited to see one of my favorite poems up in Hotazel Review. The editors have paired the poem with a lovely, evocative illustration by Griet van der Meulen. I wrote about “Kayaking on Lady Bird Lake” here. I like it because it is feminist and anti-big tech, plastic, and fascist, racist policing, but it’s also lyrical. It records a wonderful small adventure–I had never been kayaking before, for starters–that was full of contrasts and contradictions, as I said in my earlier post.

Many thanks to Editor-in-Chief Linda Ann Strang, Roving Editor Warren Jeremy Rourke, and Poetry Editors Shaun Pieter Clamp and Kharys Ateh Laue. Although I have not had time to fully explore Issue 1 of Hotazel Review, the pieces I have read are varied and compelling. So go check out my first publication in South Africa!
