First publication of the year, “Condemned”, published on La Bloga, “The world’s longest-established Chicana Chicano, Latina Latino literary blog.” Edward Vidaurre, Poet Laureate of McAllen, TX, read at the Austin Poetry Society’s Open Mike earlier this month. To continue the tone of his reading, I read the “Condemned” draft from my notebook. He liked it and asked me to send him a copy to post on the Poets Responding section of Facebook. La Bloga picked it up and included it in February 2018 Ends, Final On-line Floricanto Of the Month. It’s one of several poems, just keep scrolling til you find it.
