Been reading through and enjoying the new issues of Willow Springs and The American Poetry Review. They're fantastic, and I've got some poems in them. You should buy copies of both. They're perfect for the summer. Like getting a good deal on a gas grill.

Happy 4th. Eat some hot dogs, spill some ice cream. Blow up the sky with a thousand small and screaming fireworks.

Hi Clay, very very belatedly -- congratulations on APR. I really enjoyed your poem in there and have been meaning to say so for, well, for a long time. It was great to see you in those pages. Hope you're enjoying your summer.

Thanks so much, Matt! Loved your recent poem in Linebreak, too. Summer is good, but I'm not ready for it to be over. Hope life is good w/ you, and keep in touch.
