Marly-links, Mezzo Cammin

It seems that I am the most-published-in-Mezzo-Cammin poet--that's good, since I am fond of the magazine and have respect for Kim Bridgford as editor and poet. Since she directs The West Chester Poetry Conference, I managed to talk to her a few times last week, as well as hear a reading from her poems. I've been in ten issues since first discovering the magazine; here are some links, should you like to ramble around in Kim's picks from my poems: 

2012.12011.22011.12010.22010.12009.22009.12008.22008.1, & 2007.1.


  1. Marly, I have had a short and delicious ramble through some during a coffee break, must come back again for more!

  2. Hi Marja-Leena,

    So glad you did--you are a wonderful reader!


Alas, I must once again remind large numbers of Chinese salesmen and other worldwide peddlers that if they fall into the Gulf of Spam, they will be eaten by roaming Balrogs. The rest of you, lovers of grace, poetry, and horses (nod to Yeats--you do not have to be fond of horses), feel free to leave fascinating missives and curious arguments.
