Shameless Self-Promotion

The latest issue of STREET, a new periodical featuring local poetry and short fiction, has hit the streets, but you can't pick up a copy. The pages of STREET are posted in the windows of participating businesses in the International Village, so you get to walk around the Village to read it.

When I heard about this, I decided to take a stab at writing and submiting a poem. Amazingly, they accepted it. My clumsy effort can be read in the window of FRWY at the northwest corner of King and Wellington.
