I’m so excited to see one of my poems about Texas published online at The Tishman Review. I really love this new literary journal and I’m honored to be included in their fourth issue.
I wrote “Horse Lubber” after driving across the Lone Star State in October 2014 on my way to Texarkana. Texas is like another planet to me, and I say that fondly. Have you experienced Texas? Have you ever seen a Horse Lubber grasshopper? They’re both HUGE. My poem is small (unusual for me). Please go read it and let me know what you think.
In fact, The Tishman Review has a Readers’ Favorite contest for each issue – with cash prizes! Go HERE to vote for “Horse Lubber” and help me win some $money$. Maybe I will take you out to dinner if I win.
