Capital & Main Newsletter; “Complexities”

Monday, May 19, 2014

Linda and I just came home from an anniversary dinner and I found an e-mail from Jessica Goodheart, letting me know that “Complexities” has been officially posted in the “Words of Fire” poetry column she edits for Capital & Main. For those interested in the poem’s provenance, I wrote a rough draft of the poem shortly after arriving at my typesetting job in Century City back in the late 1980s. I had seen the scene depicted about a mile from work.

According to its site, “Capital and Main is a news website (that) originated at the Los Angeles Alliance for a New Economy.” Its goals seem remarkably similar to the editorial position of Blue Collar Review, a poetry magazine based in Norfolk, Virginia, which I wholeheartedly recommend to all my readers.
