New Coin Poetry on Facebook posts a poem of mine

New Coin Poetry, published twice a year is one publication worth supporting. Get your local library to subscribe to this South African institution. Better than the trashy magazines. And I’m not just saying this because they’ve accepted my poetry. 🙂

“People Who Live with Lions” is one of the poems also included in a forthcoming anthology of contemporary South African poetry edited by Denis Hirson, following a similar anthology he put together in French. It is now in a manuscript called SKY FOR SILENT WINGS which I hope to submit to a publisher soon. The lion sketch is by one of my daughters. 🙂  I can’t draw.
