Curtis,

I had a couple poems in the first issue and received a paper copy of it... very professional and well-edited. In addition to the poems it contained two short pieces about Richard Wright and a few of his haiku.

Greg,

I agree, nice publication and well-edited. I enjoyed the section about Richard Wright and I enjoyed all of the poems by contributors.

I thought your two poems were great. The first one jolted me back to my youth; my dad used to send me down to the basement to fetch cigars out of a box. I always had a feeling of dread as I descended those steps.

The second poem made me chuckle, the content being so true.

Thanks for dropping by Blogging Along Tobacco Road.

Curtis,

Thanks for the nice words. Glad you liked the poems. I thought the pieces about Richard Wright were good, too. That "laughing boy" haiku is one of my favorite.
