Popcorn Press received a very nice handwritten card from Feeding America recently. Our Empty Shoes anthology paid another $1029.80 to the organization at the end of last month, bringing us up to date on its earnings. All profits from that anthology are devoted to helping the hungry and homeless, and Feeding America has been our organization of choice for the proceeds. Thank you again to Patrick T. Randolph for putting the project together.
Since then I’ve worked exclusively in publishing, first for game companies, now in education. I also continue to write, study, and promote poetry. It’s my opinion that poetry used to belong to the people, until academics stole it. It’s high time to steal it back from them.
Obsessed with successes he’d had,
Frankenstein went nearly mad—
created a creature,
then hated its features,
and so became a deadbeat dad.
