This Site is Now Mobile Friendly! :)

I’ve been out of the loop for quite a long while on this one, and I apologize. The old format was a custom format which I had rather liked, but it was good only on screen.

The poem will be on my poetry blog on November 2nd. I have a large back log of short poems so I am sharing one or two per day in chronological sequence among sequences of poems in common collections.
