My Pushcart Nomination – luck or flow

Im thrilled to have been nominated for a Pushcart Prize in poetry!!

I’ve been writing since finishing my teaching post grad, messing with various genres, writing about writing, interviewing authors but never struck that gold. If you look back you’ll notice I loved abstract; my author interviews were gas and out there.

I’m not very surprised that I found my voice in postmodern poems. Or avant-garde or L=A=N=G=U=A=G=E or neomodern or experimental…whater you want to call it. They’re based on string theory, love of language usage, subversion, parallelism, and triggering healing.

Yeah…healing. Reading a sentence that subverts its trigger results in scientific brain activity thus healing. And after my small family’s loss…this was so needed.

It is difficult to get published as not many “get” experimental poetry. But Dream Journal “got” Italian published my most playful and visual postmodern poem and nominated it for a Pushcart.

Thrilled, happy and in flow.

Here it is as image and how it was nominated.

And here it is as normal text.
