Bloom is Fresh!

Received my copy of Bloom in the mail the other day. I love the cover, with the flag-like red and white stripes (or are they prison bars?) separating the Mexican and American young men (very apropos of our current political scene). And I am really happy with how my poems turned out "The Closing of the Liberace Museum," and "Cosmic Forces Brought Us Together." Thank you Bloom! Other poets in this issue include DA Powel, Eloise Klein Healy, Jeanine Deibel, Joshua Charles, and others. But two of my favorite pieces from the issue are prose: Richard McCann's lovely memoir about his father's unfinished novel, and Terra Brigando's riveting short story, "Ash," about a girl who watches a boy set himself on fire. Check it out and buy the new issue at their website!
