The Hippest Poets

I'm thrilled to announce that three of my poems, "Om," "Poet," and "Poem for the Women of Atenco, Mexico," appear in the new anthology, Hip Poetry 2012, from Wind Publications for WorldWide Hippies. The anthology is edited by Mitchell Waldman, Diana May-Waldman, and Joe McEvoy, and it has the coolest cover in the world. The very hip looking guy in the car on the cover - that's Joe himself!

In the words of the editors: "WorldWide Hippies is proud to announce the release of Hip Poetry 2012. Published by Wind Publications, this volume is art that questions and challenges, moves and dances. In the words we see, hear, feel and taste the light and heat of each artist. We see these artists' responses to challenges of life in the modern world, responses which meet the horrors, pain and suffering in the world today head on, without blinders, but which still reflect an undying spirit of hope and peace. Available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble and the Worldwide Hippies website. Peace & Love."

I must say, I am in great company here! I can't wait to get my copy and see what all the other poets contributed!
