Get Your Poem On/ 34 “With women and children on the street…”


I was met with a nice surprise today when I checked my inbox.  I had forgotten that I had sent a poem to Syndic No.21 which is an issue on social justice and injustice.  A friend from the NYC poetry circles, Gordon A. Gilbert, Jr., shared this on-line journal with me a while back.  I was impressed with the quality of it.  I sent a poem and the publisher expressed liking it, but I didn’t realize it was accepted.  Maybe I accidentally deleted an email, not sure.

The whole journal is definitely worth your time.  My poem is next to last in the table of contents.   It’s titled “With women and children on the street…”

Thanks for your interest and time.  Much appreciated.
