Words Dance has published another one of my poems! “Texarkana Tap Water” was inspired by my time last Autumn in Texarkana, Texas. A gorgeous state – Texas is big enough to encompass many different kinds of beauty, from high desert to the hill country to the bayou. And Texans really set the bar high for hospitality. Much thanks to my friend Susan for the opportunity to immerse myself in this part of America, even if the tap water was quite…unique. My heart goes out to everyone affected by the floods. I suppose the eventual good news is that the state’s four year drought is over. I would raise a glass of tap water to that. You can read my poem here.
