poetry publications writing

Watch out, the world’s behind you

Okay, back to business as usual.

I’ve got a poem in Capital Region Poets Magazine. As you can probably figure out from the title, it’s a poetry magazine featuring work from people living in the Capital Region.

My piece is called “Sunday Morning.” Bonus points if the title made you think of the Velvet Underground song, though the poem has nothing to do with it.

You can pick up a copy of the magazine at a couple different bookstores in the area, as listed on the website. I couldn’t find it at Market Block Books in Troy, but the Book House in Stuyvesant Plaza has it. Alternately, you can order one straight from the publisher here. Seven-fifty either way.

Interestingly, this issue also features the work of Alan Catlin, an Albany poet I like a bit. The last time both our stuff appeared in the same place was that issue of Zygote in My Coffee a while back. Immediately after that issue, Zygote closed shop. Clearly, our stuff is cursed, at least when it appears together. Let’s see if Capital Region Poets can survive. Edit (2/23/11): Looks like Zygote is back up and running.  So, uh, never mind.
