Cordite Poetry Review

My work TV Dinner is part of Cordite Poetry Review's newest issue of EKPHRASTIC. Cordite is an Australian international journal of poetry review and criticism, and series of print books. I was included in this issue thanks to the talented poet, Mr. David Ades. This may sound confusing, but Mr. Ades wrote a poem referring to two pieces contained in the Verse Envisioned Anthology, Chris Yeager’s Remember That Vietnamese Guy They Shot On TV In 1968 and my work T.V. Dinner. Ades really captures the timeless aspects of our experiences. Some moments whether seen first hand or viewed on a television are so powerful they echo through history and possibly forever.  Be sure to read the poem at the link. **
