I am so exhausted after writing sometimes, I can barely see straight. I am just finishing my next book, and that is always the hardest time for me.

I don't know of any writer, poet, artist, and publisher with more energy than Didi Menendez. I have had the honor of being published by her in MiPoesias and Poets/Artists and on iTunes, and of being a part of her amazing art and poetry shows. Her latest show can be seen here: https://indd.adobe.com/view/3fcc628d-cb92-46f3-93c3-2c8ca64057cc. The website for Poets/Artists is www.poetsandartists.com. You can see the magazine here: http://www.magcloud.com/browse/issue/1075086. And this is book of art and poetry she published of my and Emily Lisker's work. What an amazing force Didi is! So many of us poets and artists have benefited from her passion and hard work!
That time of year thou mayst in me behold
When yellow leaves, or none, or few, do hang
Upon those boughs which shake against the cold,
Bare ruin'd choirs, where late the sweet birds sang.
In me thou see'st the twilight of such day
As after sunset fadeth in the west,
Which by and by black night doth take away,
Death's second self, that seals up all in rest.
In me thou see'st the glowing of such fire
That on the ashes of his youth doth lie,
As the death-bed whereon it must expire,
Consum'd with that which it was nourish'd by.
This thou perceiv'st, which makes thy love more strong,
To love that well which thou must leave ere long.
I've spent the week trying to polish off some poems and a manuscript for a chapbook. I finally sent them along. Now I want to unsend them. It's always like that for me. The worst is when a book comes out, and I want to rewrite it. I dream of the day I don't feel like this!
