Dear Everyone: this week, the poet Justin Lowe published my poem Getting Old from my collection The Moon Is In The House in his wonderful BluePepper Poetry Magazine. This poem has a lot to do with language, age, and our relationship to the earth. It was written when I was forty-three, but now since I’m fifty-one I’m ‘bending toward the earth’ even more. bluepepper.blogspot.com
