My poem "Soaked Through" is up at Eye to the Telescope
, the SFPA's online journal of speculative poetry. Check out issue #3. It's all about the persona poem. As guest editor Jeannine Hall Gailey puts it, "The definition of persona poetry is poetry that is told from the first-person perspective of a character who explicitly is not the poet." It's funny, quite a few of the poems I've written could be considered persona poems, yet it wasn't until Jeannine's call that I first learned the term. You just never know how much you don't know, do you?
