I am really excited to have my poem “Burlesque” included in such a beautiful publication as the The Pine Cone Review: Glissade, Special Issue On Dance.” My poem may be viewed here:

Sometimes the uncertainty of what will be accepted for publication both fascinates and puzzles me. I submitted two poems for this special dance issue, and I would have bet the farm that the other poem had a much better chance of being accepted. It’s a good thing that I don’t actually own a farm!
Nonetheless, I am very proud of “Burlesques” and am extremely grateful that it has seen the light of day in this gorgeous publication.
