My poem “Sashiko” is in the October issue of Anti-Heroin Chic. You can read it here. My thanks to editors James Diaz and Jenny Robbins. Please do read all the fine poems and stories in the issue.
This poem has a definite creation story. After my mother died in April, a friend, who is a nurse, sent me a card with the art and message below. But she has also experienced personal loss.
