Weekend Frivolity: Contracts Prof Publishes Two Sonnets

I am happy to share that I have published two sonnets in Light.  These are my first published poems, unless Limericks count, and they don't.  

The setting is fitting for frivolity, as Light publishes humorous verse, and at least one of the poems is truly frivolous.  My poems are in good company; links to some highlights below.

Frigaliment fans might also want to have a look at Bruce Bennett's, A Vulture Is a Vulture Isn't a Vulture.

Andrew Frisardi contributes a lovely Ballade for the late Tim Murphy, one my favorite contemporary poets, whose unrivaled ability to write love poems for hunting dogs is on diaplay here.

The issue includes a Limerick-loving lawyer as well, and Stephen Gold's biographical note  is almost as charming as his poem.

Chris O'Carroll's Life Is Better with Cannibals is a great slice of life, especially if like me, you currently live in Oklahoma.  

The issue also includes two new poems from Wendy Videlock, along with the wonderful news that she has both a new book and a collection of essays forthcoming.
