Big thanks to Cheryl Moyer and all the poets at the UUC Poetry Cafe in Montgomery for the warm welcome and inspiring night of poetry! I enjoyed meeting all of you and appreciate so much your support of my work. Now send me submissions for BAJ! I will be so disappointed if you don't.

Meanwhile I am still searching for just the right word to replace "mad" in a poem not about a dog ( but ones that uses a dog as a metaphor) that I workshopped yesterday at the Big Table. I'm thinking maybe "half-starved"??

  1. "Half-starved" sounds like a good word. The first thing that came to my mind, but of course it depends on the context and what you are trying to convey, is "rabid". Now you've peaked my interest!
