Default Potcake #5, "Strip Down", is out

Potcake Chapbook 5, "Strip Down - poems of modern life" is now up and out, the post office is delivering the first copies in some countries, and others like myself will have to wait a couple of months before the post office gets its act together. So it goes.

With a mixture of lighthearted and flippant poems and others that are more meditative and bittersweet, all illustrated by the amazing Alban Low, "Strip Down" follows the formula of the earlier chapbooks. Returning Potcake Poets are Brian Allgar, Marcus Bales, Susan De Sola, Robin Helweg-Larsen, Vera Ignatowitsch, George Simmers, A.E. Stallings, Tom Vaughan and Gail White; newcomers to the series are Antonia Clark, David Galef, Claudia Gary, Paula Mahon and D.A. Prince.

My author copies arrived today. Thanks so much! What a delightful little gem Potcake is. I wish I had known about it earlier.

First time I'm not in there and will have to buy some. So I will. Now.

I just did. And here's where I did it.

They're wonderful, Robin.

I find it strange that mail from the UK gets here (Canada) two or three times as fast as mail from the US - within driving distance - but mail from the US gets to the UK faster than to here.

Love all the poems.
(My sonnet was workshopped here.)

P.S. Thanks for the link.
