Mixed Haiku / Tanka Sequence on the EPN

Each day next week, beginning on Monday, January 31st, and running  through February 6th, a sequential verse from my sequence, “After Surgery,” will be featured on Shreve Memorial Library’s Electronic Poetry Network. The poem will be running all day (or all weekend) long on an electronic message board at the Main Library in Shreveport, Louisiana. There is also a companion location for the EPN on the library’s web site:

<http://www.shreve-lib.org/index.php/services/poem-of-the-day> .

If this does not work, please go to www.shreve-lib.org, click on “Services” and then on “Poem of the Day.”

After that, the poems may or may not be accessible. Carlos Colon is checking to see whether they are going to create an archive for the site, along with the redesign.
