Poetry magazine contacted me recently to submit some personal work I had laying around for a cover. They've used a lot of great artwork over the years, as you can see in this slideshow.
I remember Cathie Bleck recently posted a cover she'd done with them.
Anyway, I'd done this image originally as a cover for my friend's band Yard Sale
, but they ended up going in a different direction and so the image was never used. I'm glad it worked out for Poetry Magazine, which is a terrific half-size compilation of poems published by The Poetry Foundation.
