One of my poems, Dusk in Los Quicios by the Town Hall, published at ppigpen, a webste run by Catfish McDaris has been nominated for a Pushcart Prize;
2013 Pushcart Prize
Harry Houdini fell out of a taxi wrapped in chains,
limbs contorting in all the wrong places,
half-covered by a hessian sack.
A parade of trainee priests swept into view,
singing some ancient hymn,
badly out of tune,
long after they had walked on by.
The Pushcart Prize was established in 1976, and is a highly regarded literary project, based in New York. It represents the best of the small presses, which nominate up to six short stories, poems, essays, memoirs or novel extracts from their published output during the year, for possible inclusion in the Pushcart Prize: Best of the Small Presses series.
