Texas Observer Grants My Wish

TexasObserverPoem

I submitted a poem to Texas Observer just after the first of the year and got an email, a sweet email, saying the editor loved all five of my poems but could only publish the shortest. It wasn’t until I received the magazine (and a check!) did I realize why. The poem took up 2/3’s of the page. It was great seeing my name in such big print. I’m humbled at what they produced, and proud.

Although money for writing such things will not get me into a mansion anytime soon, but I am very grateful they felt it was worthy…

Cowtown, Texas 1975 is in my new book, My South By Southwest: A Cast Iron Recollection
