My poem entitled “Suitcase” is in the 2018 Paterson Literary Review edited by the amazing Maria Mazziotti Gillan. This is what I call a ‘whole cloth’ poem, one that arrives intact and I just needed to write it down. We were flying to Arkansas for the Eureka Springs UFO conference last April. The woman in the seat next to mine and I began talking and she told me this personal and heart-wrenching story. When we got to the hotel that evening I wrote it down. Suitcase is that poem.
