A new month… and new poetry out for both Joseph Robert and I in two more online literary journals. As one half of a writing couple, it’s always fun to have our publications appear simultaneously in either ezines or print. My poem, ‘Rose Tinted’ appears on the Guest Blog of Nostrovia Poetry. Nostrovia showcases a new poet every few days – and as I like my poems short, but not sweet (or perhaps, with a little bite given the poem I’m about to allude to), a recent favourite of mine is ‘Dog’ by Colin Lichen.
Joseph Robert’s poetry is never without bite either! Three of his poems appear at Unlikely Stories – ‘A poem for the Needy’, ‘Postmodern Chimp on Patrol’ and ‘Zoo’. Animal themed? Hey now, Homo Sapiens Sapiens, don’t kid yourselves that we’re anything else! While you’re checking out Unlikely Stories, stop by ‘Broadway Chimes’ by Jay Passer and ‘The Recipe for Zero/ Scream’ by Peter Marra. These two also resonated with me.
