Looking back, two ‘old’ poems
I just received news that Westerly has a new website (and it’s great too) which includes digital downloads of back issues! I love that they’ve chosen to do this and thought I’d also share a link to Issue 54:1 (July 2009) which featured one of my poems on p158, The Jacket (the poem which closes…
