This month Joseph Robert has 3 poems appearing in Black Mirror Magazine. Issue 6 is dedicated to Groundhog Day, but Joseph’s poems are more relevant to another celebration this month – Valentine’s Day. One romantic, one not so romantic and one that’s more about the head than the heart in a ritual favoured by the ancients… at times I feel trepanning might have its uses. When the head is filled with pus that not even a writer can put into a publishable form, perhaps it would be better to drill a nice, neat hole. But since this month is more about cupid than Lethe, let us focus on romance. Aren’t I a lucky one-half-of-a-writer-couple? There’s no shadow forecasting 6 more weeks of winter for this little groundhog!

No more winter for these romantic groundhogs
