Just found out that Verse Daily, that venerable daily publication working “to promote poets and their publishers while providing a wealth of excellent poetry to the public free of charge,” selected a poem of mine titled “Ice Plant” that they’d originally republished from Bateau 3.2 (a great issue that New Pages loved) last June for their seven-poem ‘Best of 2010’ list earlier this month.
I knew there was a reason I felt all sorts of anticipatory excitement around 1/1/11. Thanks, Verse Daily, for the reprint and the selection. Thanks, Bateau, for getting the poem to print in the first place. I’m honored.
