I received my contributor’s copy of the literary journal out of SUNY in Plattsburg, NY, Saranac Review. It includes two poems of mine, “Firebug!” and “Uprising.” Both refer to racial injustice in this country. “Uprising” is an ekphrastic poem based on Susan List’s painting “Four Arts,” that I saw in a small museum Palm Beach, FL when I was there for a workshop a few years ago. I was happy to see my friend Joseph Bruchac’s two poems in the magazine as well other poets of note, such as Laurie Sewall, Aimee Sands, and Ricardo Pau-Llosa. I didn’t know Joseph was so prolific; his bio note says he is the author of “over 130 books in many genres.” The rest of us have some catching up to do.
