I was honored to have my poem about food, family, and Thanksgiving up on Poetry Breakfast for the holiday.
I received a wonderful pre-Thanksgiving reminder of how much I have to be grateful for this morning. My beautiful contributor’s copy of Chiron Review arrived in the mail. It includes three of my poems about alcoholism and recovery, “Mementos,” “Sobriety and its Discontents,” and “Blue Flashing Lights.” I’m thankful to be alive, thankful to be sober, thankful for my poetry community and thankful for this beautiful world.
Uncertain times call for light verse. “Sweet Forgiveness” originally appeared in Unrequited: An Anthology of Love Poems about Inanimate Objects, edited by Kelly Ann Jacobson. Enjoy!
