Cumberland River Review: The First Five Years


“Green Snake,” first published online at Cumberland River Review, has been included in that journal’s new anthology Cumberland River Review: The First Five YearsThis book collects not only selected poems but also authors’ commentary on their own poem as well as a poem by a fellow author, and so I was able to reflect on my work as well as Marjorie Stelmach’s “Lullaby for Two Voices.”

This poem exists because of D – – – -. Thank you for sending us love and light even after passing.
