Tick Tock (1990)


The day is 
          dragging
like mola
          sses
on the tip of
your tongue.

Acceptance Letter & Magazine 1991


Notes

  • Next Exit was a quarterly magazine published in Kingston, ON. My poem was accepted & published in 1991.
  • The editor of the magazine, Eric Folsom, became Kingston’s first poet laureate and is still writing poetry.
  • Here’s a little advice to aspiring poets: when you submit a few poems to a magazine, include a short one. Editors have to space out a magazine and lots of times there will be a small area that needs to be filled by a short poem. Give them an option for that empty space!
