The New Issue

The New Issue

Who is Jean Harlow?  Yes, who is she really?
Nineteen thirty seven…it’s anyone’s guess!
If you read our magazine, you’ll ideally
learn this – and so much more.  Stratosphere Express!
Want to see your signs and portents?  This, we know,
is just the tip of the iceberg.  And although
Great Sea Stories also fill our pages
we’re perfect for all literary sages!


Notes of Issue (get it??!!): Today, Sepia Saturday posted the above magazine cover art as their prompt.  Very cool, right?  Since I am still in Rispetto mode (thank you, Robert Lee Brewer and Poetic Asides) that's the form I used for the poem.  And obviously, as you can see, I just decided to write a cover for the cover!

Finally, if you get the chance, check out Poetic Bloomings.  They interviewed moi for this week's poets' spotlight.  

Thanks - and have a great weekend!


  1. You did more than write a cover for the cover - you did it with such style. Thanks

  2. You have a skill I envy with your cover for a cover.

  3. You covered the cover very well! Clever indeed.

  4. I, really enjoyed, your take on this! Nicely presented!

  5. This "new issue" reads like an interesting read ;-)

  6. Great job of fitting in all the titles and still making sense!
