Two very different poems have appeared in the same week on opposite sides of my native continent.
PoetryBay has been publishing poetry from their Long Island base for many years; The Westerner, focused on themes of the American (and sometimes Wild) West, recently asked for a poem as well.
You can read “Tingle” in the free downloadable Christmas issue of The Westerner (the poem is on page ten), and subscribe to the magazine on their website.
The poem “Reading Dostoevsky in the John Lewis Café” is available at PoetryBay, along with many other excellent poems.
Wishing you all a lovely Christmas, whatever continent you’re on.
