First, I've got a new poem up a Vox Populi, a sad politically tinged sonnet titled "Confused Prayer."

Third, Hole in the Head Review has published two new poems--"August" and "Preface to Paradise Lost"-- along with the work of several of my dear poet-friends, including Baron Wormser and Betsy Sholl.
Fourth, the poet Kerrin McCadden, who is also the associate director of the Frost Place Conference on Poetry and Teaching, has written an impassioned editorial about why schools should not be reopening this fall. It's important, and it should be shared widely.
