A poem I wrote inspired by the marching on DC back in January is in the latest issue of “Backstreet Review.” The poem is “Nasty Women marching in Washington, DC.” It’s in issue #71.
It’s funded! Thanks to everyone who backed my latest poetry project on Kickstarter! Until next time …. Best, LB
New poems by LB Sedlacek. Go on a poetry travel adventure from North Carolina, through SC, Georgia to Cocoa Beach, Legoland and more!
“Hey Astro!” is a follow up to “Mars or Bust.” It contains all brand new poems about my family’s annual trip from North Carolina to Florida. We do have some adventures! On this past trip we revisited Legoland, Cocoa Beach, Savannah and traipsed through the wilds of South Carolina on the way including a non-stop at South of the Border. Have you ever been to South of the Border? Then, there’s a poem in this book just for you!
Excerpt from “Hey Astro!” – from the poem “Surf Zombies”: “…surfing zombies / with brains intact / with speech intact / but they can’t use either one / no / bro / it’s / against the zombie surfer code…..”
Excerpt from “Hey Astro!” – from the poem “Lake Eloise”: “…butterflies and fishermen / standing in idling boats / talking about the odds / the lack of results / no catch no fish / a lake as vast ….”
Some of the poems in “Hey Astro!”: “It’s Bo Time,” “Welcome to Florida,” “Night Swim,” “The Dinosaur Store, Part 2,” “Putt Putt and Gators,” “Where Orange Juice Comes From,” “Florida Toll Roads,” “Georgia Pecans,” “River Street – Savannah,” “I’ve Never Been to South of the Border” and more!
I’m excited that I have three new poems that have just been published in Sick Lit Magazine, “Bruising History,” “Gone Away” and “Life Hours.”
From the poem “Bruising History”: “Each window had a candle lit every day all day a burning bright white light the man living there said his wife liked the lights something to do with her history their neighbor across the street his house had no candles it was overgrown with vines….”
