Default The Dark Horse

I have three poems in the latest issue of The Dark Horse, which should be out at the beginning of next week. All have appeared here at some point. They're called "Familia", "Crematorium Blues" and "Spuggy". Here's the cover and there I am on the contents page, with some other names you might know.

I'm really quite thrilled about this one to put it mildly.

Cheers folks.

I certainly remember and much enjoyed "Spuggy". You performed it on Carmine Street Metrics last year which is very well worth a watch.

Wow, Mark. That's quite an achievement, three poems in one of the very top venues anyone could hope for. Congratulations.

Congratulations Mark!

Fantastic news, it's a well-regarded mag, and even better to get three in.

You had one in there before a couple of years back, too, I think?

That's fantastic news. And I recognise some other names on the cover/contents, too.

I remember 'Spuggy' - I'm not sure I've read the other two, which probably means I ought to go and seek this issue out, doesn't it!

Very cool, kudos, kudos and huge congratulations!

I've long had an ambition to have something published there. About ten years ago I realised my best chance was with some prose. Now I've also more or less given up on that too. But you never know. Very well done, Mark!

That is good company with M. Corbett and Rob Mackenzie. And G. C. Waldrep is a very fine poet with a characteristically fine poem that I thank you for allowing me to discover.
