My poem, “Travelogue” in 2015 issue of U.S. 1 Worksheets

I’m pleased that U. S. 1 Worksheets accepted my poem “Travelogue” for their spring 2015 issue. U.S. 1 is based in Princeton, NJ, and has published its yearly  journal since 1973. The journal includes over 100 new and seasoned poets in each issue; local, national, and international voices are featured. See the journal at the link above if you wish to submit.

I’ve been fortunate to be published previously by U.S. 1 Worksheets.

The varied covers for the journal are photographs, paintings, or mixed media collages by acclaimed artists.
——————————————————————————————————
On the twenty-mile trip to work, and then home at the end of the day, these are some of the things I experienced:

Travelogue
*
In the morning headed to work:
purple and red sky surround the crescent moon—
swollen lips on a plum.

*
The blue Nissan with the Jesus license plate
speeds toward the intersection, crusading
through after the yellow changes.

*
The white van’s dome light appears and inside
sit five guys with short hair above buttoned
collars, sharing a joint.

*
The deer had no chance since the car coming
the other way finished what the car
in front of me did not.

*
Later, headed home and drowsy, I drive off
the edge of the road. The rough, brown
dirt of a Bucks County farm saves me.
