    1. The feeling is so mutual, Alison, thank you! I was excited to see Hicok’s poem on your site last week; I shared it here with his spoken performance after a reader suggested it for the times. Such a spiritual gut punch, especially your touching intro.

      And oh congrats on your new podcast! May I give you a shout-out over here in the near future? Any special post or poem you’d like me to link to along with the podcast?

        Christina, you are such a doll. Your blog has meant so much to me for years now, and I love connecting this way. Thank you for the kind words about the podcast! I’d be thrilled and honored for a shout-out. Actually, here’s a thought: would you want to be featured in an episode? You must have been drawn to poems for maybe the same reason as me. . . that early on it felt as if poems could save your life, somehow? Let me know what you think. XO

      2. Oh that is so nice of you, Alison, thank you! But just the thought breaks me out in hives. 😬😆 I’m much happier behind the curtain, so to say. I’ll definitely give you a little wave here probably in the first week of June though! I’ll “borrow” a couple poems from you, and maybe a snippet from your intros; I know readers will love your thoughts and choices. ❤️

    I completely understand! And thank you so much for the future shout-out. It means so much to me that you love the blog and podcast, especially given how yours is the first poetry blog I turn to. It’s been wonderful seeing so many new posts lately. XO
