This weekend, “A Soul for an Hour” was published in the San Antonio Express-News, appearing both in print and online. This is the first of my twenty-six abecedarian sonnets to be published, and I’m happy to have the series debut in a Texas publication. Thanks to poetry editor Jim LaVilla-Havelin for publishing my work.
(The online formatting turned out a little wonky, but just imagine that none of the lines wrap around. And if you can get a print version, check out that one, because the lines ended up perfect.)
Though this isn’t mentioned in publication, this poem is dedicated to my friend Phoebe. (I’ll be sure to add the dedication when this is included in my next book.)
