Poem Responding to Oil Spill On-Line

It has been far too long since I posted anything—going back to early April. I will enter a catch-up post, soon—giving both personal and professional doings since then, but here I’m announcing a new on-line publication:   “For a Chemical Waste-Removal Worker” appears on-line in the anthology State of Emergency: Chicago Poets Address the Gulf Crisis. You will need to scroll down, or “find” my name to see it, since the site is updated daily: at

http://chicagopoetry.com/modules.php?op=modload&name=News&file=article&sid=1415.

Please scroll down to “Day 59: June 17, 2010.” I’ve also sent the editor several more poems, so if any more appear, I’ll update this entry. (The editor is now accepting submissions from all over the world, not just Chicago.)
