December Doumo

Before the year ends, let me thank the editors of Conclave: A Journal of Character and A Minor Magazine who nominated my poems published this year for a Pushcart Prize and Best of the Web 2012 respectively. While I'm at it, I thank the District #27 voters who supported my bid for State Representative. I never imagined an unknown candidate with $0 campaign financing could get 1,494 votes! I lost, but I lost very well. While we're pleased with the results in New Hampshire overall, we can't afford to be complacent. Remember to vote in 2014! And, since I am among those who do not believe the world will end this month, check back in January for links to more online publications coming up soon. Shin-en akemashite omedetto. (This New Year's Eve, I really hope I dream about eggplant, eagles, or Mt. Fuji.)

Hobo Camp Review: California Issue

Once again, 13 has proven to be my lucky literary number. My new poems are up and live at Hobo Camp Review for their California issue . . . which turned out to be Issue #13. I don't try to get writing published in Issue 13s, but maybe I should.

New Year tanka

Tanka is a Japanese poetic form consisting of five lines and many other things. A tanka I wrote is online at Inner Art Journal today, the first day of 2012. Last night, though I hoped to dream about eggplant, eagles, or Mt. Fuji--the three New Year's Eve's dreams considered to be very lucky--I did dream about looking up at a big tree full of nests of baby Toucans. I'm going to take that as a good sign. Happy new year!
