I’ve been meaning to share this poem by David Ades for a long time now.  “The Bookmark, the Poems, the Light” was published in Australian Poetry this past December, David sent me a link to the journal with a happy belated birthday message attached. His poem references my chapbook, which is now available on Amazon, and the new book by my dear friend and teacher Joy Katz, “All You Do Is Perceive” (Four Way Books, 2013). I am so, so thrilled to know David, whose work I’ve loved since hearing him read in Pittsburgh, PA several years ago, and feel honored to be in this poem.  Thank you David!
