Best of Poetry Hickory News & Excerpt

The news from Main Street Rag is that they’re printing 250 copies of The Best of Poetry Hickory.  84 of those copies will go to contributors, and a dozen or so to libraries, collectors, etc.  That will leave only about 150 for “public consumption.”  They will be on sale for just $5 each at Taste Full Beans Coffeehouse in downtown Hickory starting Sep 13 until they sell out.  If you can’t get there but really want one, let me know, and we’ll work out the shipping.

Here is an excerpt from Robert Abbate’s “Ecco Homo” just to give you a taste of what’s coming:

The religiously
intolerant would not see
the Crucified in disguise.
They would not hear
the gentle spirit’s refrain:
Forgive them even when
they know fully what they do.
