“The People Who Live Near Us Are Our Neighbors” Published in Ploughshares

Friends. I’m holding Ploughshares Winter 2016-2017, which includes my poem “The People Who Live Near Us Are Our Neighbors.” It’s not every day a dream comes true. What an honor to share this issue with Beth Ann Fennelly, Beth Bachmann, Anders Carlson-Wee, Tony Hoagland, Dennis Nurkse, Charles Rafferty, Sam Sax, Terese Svoboda, Leila Chatti — the list goes beautifully on. Massive, clasp-handed, doe-eyed thanks to John Taylor, David Weinstein, John Skoyles, Allison Trujillo, Ellen Duffer, and the rest of the good folks at Ploughshares.
