I received my contributor’s copy of the Winter 2024 issue of Main Street Rag. Main Street Rag press is the same operation that produced my last book, Breaking Down Familiar. It’s a well put-together magazine with a variety of stories and poems, commentary, and a feature interview with Anne M. Kaylor. As usual, the lively presence of the editor, M. Scott Douglass, is sprinkled throughout with his photographs, motorcycle travelogue, and political commentary. The poems he selects are tight; I enjoyed seeing ones by people I know such as John Nizalowski and Jason Ryberg. The two of mine included are, “Full of Wind,” a political pantoum and “The Mangas Coloradas Skull Installation,” an imaginary installation artist’s statement.
