A poem I wrote in prison in 1997 after I’d learned that William S. Burroughs had passed away has just been published in the Fall 2009 issue of Polarity — “an online magazine of New American Bohemian Literature” edited by New York poet George Wallace.  My humble piece now finds itself in the extraordinary company of work by George Moore, Tony Quagliano, Steve Dalachinsky, Herschel Silverman, and Russell Salamon.  Check out the magazine at www.poembeat.com.  (The permalink to my poem is http://www.poembeat.com/fall2009/burroughs.html.)  Thank you, George!
