It's Out!

Sybil's Garage Issue #7 (and my poem Emigrant, of course) is now out! I am eagerly awaiting my contributor copy. Check it out at:

Emigrant explores the idea of someone moving away from Earth and their longing for home. I was very tempted to title this "Hiraeth" (HERE-ryth, rhymes with scythe) which may be impossible to translate exactly, but means roughly "longing / homesickness" on a deep soul level. However, there is nothing especially Welsh about the poem, and as beautiful as the word is, you shouldn't need a footnote to understand the title of a poem. At least, I don't think so. ;-)
