I'm reviewed in Hunger Mountain!

Q Lindsay Barrett's wonderful essay 7 Ways to Seduce Your Reader includes a huge section on my story "10 Days Gone" -- originally published in the fabulous Pembroke Review.
Unbelievable honor! Great, great essay!

Autumn, Amy Lowell (1874-1925)

They brought me a quilled, yellow dahlia,
Opulent, flaunting.
Round gold
Flung out of a pale green stalk.
Round, ripe gold
Of maturity,
Meticulously frilled and flaming,
A fire-ball of proclamation:
Fecundity decked in staring yellow
For all the world to see.
They brought a quilled, yellow dahlia,
To me who am barren
Shall I send it to you,
You who have taken with you
All I once possessed?
