Yellow Mama Acceptance

Just had three poems picked up by the slick Yellow Mama literary journal:  "Year of the Rabbit", "Among the Lilies", and "Pause" will appear in the 12/11, 2/12, and 4/12 issues, respectively.  Sweet!  I'll post the links as they become available over the next several months.

Cool name, you say?  I agree.  "Yellow Mama" was the nickname for the Alabama Kilby State Prison's (now retired) electric chair, which was painted bright yellow.  The lit journal's black and yellow scheme (which reminds me of a Yellow Jacket~baby's got some sting!), and the quality of work presented reflects this edginess.  Check 'em out:
