It feels good to hold these books in my hands.

I've got a couple new poems in Drupe Fruits #2 and Matchbook #3, two fine, handmade literary magazines out of Michigan and Kentucky, respectively. I am boundlessly impressed with the creativity and craftiness of Edwin R. Perry of Plumberries Press and Friedrich Kerksieck of Small Fires Press who curated each edition's content and assembled the books by hand. Also, the colorful covers, letterpressed and vintage, make the neverending gray sky a bit more bearable as we edge into spring here in New England.
