Forgot to post this earlier, but in August, fellow poet Michael Broder was kind enough to publish my poem "Anthony," as part of his HIV Here & Now Project.
I like the idea of his project being about the "here" and the "now." The past is always within the here and the now. A few days after writing the poem, I was at the September 11th Memorial fountain, and I looked down, and there in granite was the name of Barbara Perkins underneath my fingertips.
