I’m really thrilled to receive my copy of the anthology featuring few poems for the timely and powerful anthology called “Good Cop/Bad Cop” by FlowerSong Press. Immensely thankful to the EIC and publisher of the press Edward Vidaurre and Vincent Cooper for bringing this essential and timely anthology to fruition.
I’m excited to see my poems “A Nation in Chokehold”, “An Act of Self Denial”, “Bless us Lord for the Sin Free life we are living”, and “Peace a metaphor for denial”.
