Just wanted to share the news:  My visual poem “Nightmares” was just published in a new literary journal called “Verb-ate-him”.  The first issue came out over Easter weekend and I was delighted by the news.   After reading issue #1, I felt honored to be featured among the talented writers and artists that I saw there.  I think the editorial staff did a great job in the selecting and presenting of our works.  If interested in seeing issue #1, just click the link below and see for yourself.  Thanks “Verb-ate-him” for including me in your new journal and may you have much success.
